Roane County (WVLT) - A young woman has died after crashing her car in Roane County.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol says Parks tried to pass another vehicle when she went into the grass and overcorrected.
They say her car crossed the interstate, hit a concrete barrier, crossed back over, and flipped and landed in the median.
Troopers shut down both directions of the interstate so the Lifestar Medical Helicopter could land and take Parks to U.T. Medical Center.
She later died of her injuries.
No other cars were involved in the crash and no one else was hurt.
