Woman charged with leaving scene of accident involving death


Elizabethton Police Chief Greg Workman said Chyanne Gobble, 20, 400 M St., Elizabethton, was arrested Monday and charged with leaving the scene of an accident involving a death.

Her arrest is in connection with last Thursday’s fatality on Elizabethton Highway where a pedestrian identified as Christopher Dale Hughes was hit by a vehicle.

Hughes was transported to the Johnson City Medical Center and pronounced dead at 3:17 a.m.

Workman said Gobble’s grandfather made a 911 call from his home on Maple Street.

Gobble was transported by EPD Patrolman Trevor Salyer to the Carter County Sheriff’s Department.
