KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A Seymour woman died in a truck wreck on Saturday afternoon, and one other person was injured.

It happened around 3:30 p.m. on the 7800 block of Sevierville Pike.

The KCSO said Leslie Slingluff, of Seymour, was driving a 2000 Chevy Silverado.

The truck slammed into a tree and flipped onto its top. The passenger, Terry Tomlinson, 54, of Seymour, was killed on impact.

Tomlinson was wearing a seatbelt, but Slingluff was not.

Officers said speed and failure to maintain the right of way were factors in the wreck. Charges against Slingluff are pending.
