KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- One person has died following a head-on collision in East Knoxville early Thursday morning. According to the Knoxville Police Dept., 22 year-old Daniel Lundy died en route to the hospital.
Now, Lundy's mother, Sherri is speaking out. She's bringing in the new year without her son who died just two days after Christmas.
"We were really close he didn't keep much from his mom - we were very very close. We loved each other very much all we had was me and him," said Sherri.
She wants folks to know Daniel wasn't drunk or on drugs when he got behind the wheel -- just in a hurry.
