SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - One person has died and another has been injured when a car ran off the road and into a utility pole in eastern Tennessee.

WVLT-TV in Knoxville reported (http://bit.ly/NPN6Ds ) that the car driven by Tabatha Rogers of Sevierville went off the road in Sevier County at about 2:45 a.m. Saturday.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol says Rogers, who was in her mid-20s, died in the crash.

The report says Rogers was not wearing a seatbelt. However, Trooper Brian Lawson investigated the incident and reported his opinion that a seat belt would not have made a difference.

Troopers say a passenger in the car, 27-year-old Tara Yates of Seymour, was injured, but the extent of those injuries wasn’t immediately known.
