Knoxville man still trapped at downtown intersection by marathon runners
A Knoxville motorist trapped at a downtown intersection by Knoxville Marathon runners sent a note on Saturday saying he is still alive, but hungry and low on gasoline. Knoxville police said the message was written on the back of a napkin that was thrown out of a car window at a passerby. "I am OK but hungry," read the message written by hand in fast food ketchup." Fuel low. Tell wife I love her." The driver, John Ablott of Fourth and Gill, became ensnared last Sunday at the corner of Summit Hill Drive and Central St. by a wave of runners. He remains stuck at the intersection due to no one having informed him that the race ended seven days ago.
