Driver Cited In DUI Crash That Injured Two Teenagers

Posted: Updated:

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Two Montgomery Central High School students were injured in a head-on DUI crash near their school on Thursday.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol cited 26-year-old Roni Proctor for DUI, vehicular assault and failure to maintain a lane. Investigators said Proctor's Chevrolet pickup truck drifted into the southbound lanes of Highway 13 near Montgomery County Central into the path of a Chevrolet Malibu, driven by 17-year-old Kylie Eastin.

The Malibu tried to avoid the crash, but they were struck head-on. 

"The front end of the one vehicle was totally smushed," said Olaf Marek who lives near crash scene. "It's inexcusable."

Eastin and her passenger, 15-year-old Ashley Travis, were taken by LifeFlight to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. Eastin was listed in stable condition and Travis was in critical condition. Both girls were wearing their seatbelts.

Proctor was taken to Gateway Medical Center, and then later transferred to Vanderbilt in stable condition.

Eastin, a senior, and Travis, a sophomore, are both cheerleaders at Montgomery Central. Eastin is scheduled to graduate next Thursday night.

Fellow students have planned a prayer vigil for the teens.
