BLOUNT COUNTY (WATE) - A Knoxville man on a lawnmower was injured Thursday afternoon after he was struck by a car.

Blount County deputies said it happened around 2 p.m. along Old Glory Road.

Officials said a 28 year-old woman was driving her pickup when she swerved to avoid 35 year-old Jonathan Rines who was on a stand-on mower. But due to oncoming traffic, she could not swerve in time and locked the brakes of her car striking him.

Rines was flown to the hospital for treatment. The sheriff's office is still investigating.

The pickup driver was cited for no insurance.
