A teenage male was transported to Knoxville Hospital and Clinics after the moped he was driving rear-ended an SUV. The accident occurred a little before noon near the intersection of Lincoln and Rock Island Streets. Eyewitnesses on scene say that a grey SUV was stopping for a red light there. The male driving the moped apparently failed to recognize the vehicle was stopping and hit it from behind, sending the male through the SUV’s back window. Those witnesses say that the male was at least responsive as he was being taken via ambulance. KNIA/KRLS will bring you more information as soon as it becomes official.
