Knoxville (WVLT) - Authorities say they believe alcohol played a factor in an early morning crash that claimed the life of an East Tennessee teen.
Knoxville Police say just after three this morning, a car ran off Asheville Highway just east of John Sevier Highway.
The vehicle rolled and came to rest in the parking lot of the Oak Grove night club.
Officers say the 19-year-old driver, Roland File, was thrown from the vehicle and died of his injuries.
Four passengers in the car, who were wearing their seat belts, were not hurt.
