Mumford pleads not guilty

Knoxville — Kyria Dawn Mumford, 25, of Knoxville, has pled not guilty to charges stemming from an accident on April 12. 

Mumford has been charged with serious injury by a vehicle and leaving the scene of a personal injury accident. According to court documents, Deputy Jake Smith with the Marion County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of a vehicle in a ditch in the 1500 block of 165th Avenue around 11 p.m. on April 12. There was no one at the scene and no one had called in to report an accident. 

The two passengers in the vehicle arrived at the Knoxville Hospital and Clinics' emergency room at 12:13 a.m. They said the alleged driver in the accident, Mumford, was not at the hospital.

An investigation was conducted when the passengers were released. Smith wrote in his complaint that the passengers indicated that Mumford was driving in a reckless manner. She was allegedly running at high speeds and accelerated to jump hills on gravel roads. 

Mumford allegedly lost control and struck a telephone pole. She continued into the ditch and her back seat passengers were ejected from the vehicle, according to court records. A male sustained cuts on his head and shoulders and a female had a broken bone in her leg, the report goes on to say. 

A pretrial conference is scheduled for May 14 at 9:30 a.m.
