LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – Downtown La Follette continues to have vehicles hit buildings. This time, it’s the Russell Tower. In 2020 alone, WLAF covered 10 accidents where vehicles either rammed a building or damaged property in La Follette and Jacksboro.
A car rammed into the corner on the East Central side of Russell Tower in the wee hours (2am) of Friday morning. “I am just so thankful that on one was injured,” said John Snodderly, Executive Director of the La Follette Housing Authority. Russell Tower is one of the LHA properties.
A relieved Snodderly added, “We’ll replace the brick and repair the building.” Assessments on just what needs to be repaired begin today.
