LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – A Gator used by the City of La Follette Recreation Department landed in Big Creek just after 2:30 pm on Monday afternoon.

Recreation Director Johnny Byrge said, “We can replace a Gator, but we can’t replace lives.  They’re checking out our two employees that were aboard the Gator.  One is at the hospital, and I’m taking the other one there to be checked out.”

“They said they hit a rock in the parking lot, near the stage behind the police department, and it sent them over the bank into the creek.”  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 06/22/2020-3PM-PHOTO COURTESY OF WLAF’S AARON HOPKINS)
