On Friday, December 20, 2013, at approximately 10:34 a.m., Peggy Dugger, 70, and Conna Blevins, 87, were both killed in a single-car accident on State Route Highway 133 in Shady Valley. The driver, Dugger, and her passenger who was also her sister, were both wearing their seatbelts. Dugger was found with fatal injuries while Blevins was airlifted to Johnson City Medical Center but later died of injuries sustained. According to the Johnson County Sheriffs Department, it appeared the vehicle that was traveling east had left the roadway, struck a bridge, and flipped onto its top. Sheriff Mike Reece says the investigation is still underway.
