Car Strikes Flatbed, Falls Down Embankment  

 

ETOWAH, Tenn.  I  A mother and her child were killed Wednesday afternoon on Highway 411 in Tennessee after their vehicle collided with a tow truck then careened down an embankment.

Linda Bloom was transporting her 6-year-old daughter Cayla along with another adult and two other children.  

Each of the surviving passengers were injured, and airlifted to the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville.

The incident occurred just before 3:30 pm in relatively clear conditions near the county line marker separating Etowah and Polk County.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol found that Bloom failed to yield to a stop sign when she struck the tow truck.

The driver of the flatbed was uninjured, and is not expected to be charged.

    I got hit by someone back in ’94 by someone who failed to yield. My car was totaled, but they got away. Unfortunately, these folks lost their life.
