Man dies from Piney Flats crash injuries; charges pending against Johnson City woman



BLUFF CITY — Charges were pending against a Johnson City woman after a man died in a two-vehicle crash last weekend.


Fleming Dwight Sluder, 66, Piney Flats, died at the University of Tennessee Hospital on Tuesday, according to a Tennessee Highway Patrol report.


The crash happened Saturday around 4:15 p.m. Sluder was stopped at the intersection of Cherry Street and Highway 11E when a vehicle driven by Patricia A. Rhea, 68, of Johnson City approached the intersection, then went off the road and hit the driver’s side door of Sluder’s vehicle.


THP Trooper William Shelton worked the wreck and ordered blood tests on Rhea to determine if anything contributed to the wreck.
