Car Crashes Off Interstate and Into Best Buy Parking Lot

(WVLT) - A car has gone off I-40 in West Knoxville and nearly hit a building.

The accident happened at about 6:30am.

The vehicle was apparently on I-40 Eastbound when it went off the highway and ended up in the rear parking lot of Best Buy off Cedar Bluff.

Our crews on the scene say the vehicle is resting on it's side, up against Best Buy, but there doesn't appear to be much damage to the building.

Paramedics took the one person that was in the vehicle to U.T. Medical Center. His condition and identity are not being released at this time.
