Officers say Leslie Moore, 30, of Seymour, lost control of her Dodge Durango and struck the interior wall of eastbound Pellissippi Parkway (I-140) just after 6:30 p.m. near the Blount County line.

When Moore got out to warn other approaching vehicles, she was struck by a Honda Accord driven by Jun Hon An, 47, of Knoxville.

Moore was taken to UT Medical Center for treatment of serious injuries.

Police say An was not injured.

It took crews about two hours to clear the scene of the crash.
