MASCOT (WATE) - Two women are dead after a head-on collision on Mine Road.
The call came in around 6:20 p.m. Wednesday for a stalled vehicle.
According to the Knox County Sheriff's Office, a blue Dodge Caravan driven by Patricia Burroughs, 46, of White Pine, swerved to miss a stalled SUV, and then hit head on a Chrysler Town and Country van driven by Heather Miranda, 30, of Dandridge.
It rolled over on its top, partially ejecting a passenger, a 14-year-old girl.
Both drivers died from their injuries.
Another passenger, a 13-year-old, was also injured.
Burroughs' passenger, Rosa Coleman, 64, was also taken to the hospital and is in stable condition.
It was a combined effort by Rural/Metro, Knoxville Rescue Squad and the Knox County Sheriff's Office.
"It was a very hectic scene, we had numerous responders, five total patients, it took several responders to effect rescue on each patient," said Rural/Metro firefighter Matthew Clift.
According to Clift, there were three people in the van that ended up down the embankment and two in the other van.
The woman in the stalled SUV was not injured.
All were wearing seatbelts except for the teenagers, according to the sheriff's office.
Officers shut down Mine Road for four hours during the investigation and removal of the wreckage.
The investigation by the Knox County Sheriff's Office is ongoing.
