Knoxville woman recovering after being hit by Daylight Saving Time
A Knoxville woman is recovering at UT Medical Center after being struck by Daylight Saving Time Sunday morning. According to Knoxville Police Department spokesperson Tinah Miller, the accident happened shortly after 8 a.m. Sunday on Mallow Drive. Police said 35-year-old Claudia Cortes was sleeping soundly in bed when her alarm clock went off at its normal time, robbing the West Knoxville resident of one precious hour of sleep. Witnesses told police the arbitrary time change did not appear to slow down after hitting the woman. Cortes' roommate told police that Daylight Saving Time was driving erratically before the incident. The woman is undergoing treatment using a coffee IV drip. She remains in stable condition at the hospital and is expected to eventually recover. Miller said police will apply for warrants against the time change, who police believe was impaired at the time of the accident.
