From Staff Reports


   One man was injured in a two-vehicle accident on U.S. Highway 321 at the intersection with Mockingbird Lane in the Fish Springs community just before 6 p.m. Saturday.
   The man, whose name was not immediately released, sustained injuries when the Ford Bronco he was a passenger in flipped after being struck by another car.
   According to Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper Mark Musick, a 2000 red Chevrolet Cavalier driven by Boyd C. Roark, 20, of Mountain City, was traveling north on the highway and struck the late model Bronco driven by Connie Shelton, 38, of Mountain City, which was in the southbound lane.
   Roark "apparently fell asleep and came across the center line," Musick said.
   Roark sustained a minor injury in the accident that required no medical treatment. A passenger, his wife Melinda Roark, 21, was not injured. Shelton also escaped injury in the accident. The injured man was taken to Sycamore Shoals Hospital and further information on his condition was not available Saturday night.
