Woman dies one week after crash


A crash that tragically took the lives of two young children more than a week ago on Highway 19E has claimed the life of their mother.

Tennessee Highway Patrol Spokesperson Dalya Qualls confirmed that Katrina Nye died at the Johnson City Medical Center on Friday at about 1p.m.

Nye was driving a green Ford Taurus on Thursday, Oct. 18, southbound on Highway 19E when the vehicle crossed the median in the Valley Forge community and struck a northbound maroon mini-van.

The woman’s children, 2-year-old Dalton Moffitt and 7-year-old Jonathan Nye, died the night of the crash. Nye and another passenger, Jodie Hensley, were taken by Wings Air Rescue to the JCMC for treatment.

The individuals in the mini-van, Amy Alexander and Lindsay Sluder, were taken to the JCMC, but have been released.
