Bradley County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit deputies are in charge of a crash investigation after high water on a roadway was believed to be a factor in the two-vehicle collision Tuesday.

According to Bradley County 911 reports, the call for help was received just after 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Two cars had collided head–on in the Hickory Hills community just off North Lee Highway.

The young female driver of one car reportedly hydroplaned while traveling down one of the steep hills in the area.

The young driver was transported via Bradley County Emergency Medical Service for treatment at Erlanger Medical Center, according to the report.

- A television, jewelry and other items were reportedly taken during a burglary at a Baldwin Street address.

According to a report filed by BCSO deputy Kolby Duckett, Nancy Wyand said someone broke into her home sometime between Feb. 17 and Sunday.

Wyand returned home to find a window broken from a door. A 55-inch Sanyo High-Definition TV, a jewelry box, a DVD player and loose change were reported missing.

Criminal Investigations Division detectives with the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene to begin an investigation, according to the report.

Wyand initially estimated her loss at $1,705.

After further investigation, Wyand noticed contents of the jewelry box had been taken. Wyand filed a supplemental report with deputy Robert Jones.

According to his report, the contents of the jewelry box were assessed at $50.

- Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting Driver’s License Roadside Safety Checkpoints in Bradley County during Saint Patrick’s Day.

The checkpoints will be set up in random location in the county March 17.

According to THP officials, checkpoints are an effective means of recognizing the dangers presented to the driving public, by motorists who would violate the driver’s license laws of the state.

All scheduled checkpoints are contingent upon weather conditions and manpower availability.
