Jefferson Man Killed in Union Car Accident 

A car accident claimed the life of a Jefferson man, Tuesday afternoon.

It happened along Route 17, around 2 pm.

Knox County Sheriff’s Deputies say 37-year-old Chris LeFrance was killed.

They believe he lost control of his Toyota Rav4 and veered off the road.

His car clipped the end of a guard rail then travelled another 300 feet before coming to rest down an embankment.

A driver, headed in the opposite direction, noticed the car and called 911.

LaFrance was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators aren’t sure if a medical problem played a role.
