Corryton (WVLT) -- A Lenoir City teen was killed early this morning in a fatal accident on the Knox County - Union County Line.
Authorities say 17-year old Salena Martin was headed north on Tazewell Pike when she lost control of her car and hit a utility pole.
The car then spun around sideways and landed on the passenger side.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol says a seatbelt would have saved her life.
