It happened near mile marker 85 in Jefferson County. State Police say Clifford Foster of Knoxville, Tennessee, was driving north on Interstate 57 when he swerved to avoid a deer, hit the guardrail and then lost control and rolled.

 

Two passengers in Foster’s vehicle – 33 year old Kimberly Martin and 31 year old Sherrie R. Webber – both of Knoxville – died. Two other passengers and Foster were taken to the hospital with injuries.

 

The crash remains under investigation.
