THP: Greeneville man allegedly fled on foot from head-on crash
Warrants have been filed against a Greeneville man accused of running from the scene of a head-on crash Wednesday morning in Greene County.
A Tennessee Highway Patrol crash report says a 2006 Nissan Sentra driven by William Shipley, 22, was traveling east on the Asheville Highway, when he crossed the center line and struck a 2001 Ford Ranger head-on that was driven by Lowell Collins, 80. Collins was injured and transported to the hospital, where his condition is unknown. THP says Shipley allegedly fled on foot from the crash and a search of his vehicle found drugs inside.
He has a number of charges pending including Felony Drug and Possession of Paraphernalia, DUI, and traffic charges.
