April Dawn Stillwell, 17, killed; Shane Swiney, 22, injured in ATV crash near Barb Hollow Road in Walland, Tennessee
“She knew everything about me and I knew everything about her. We were together like everyday pretty much. When I moved it was hard for the both of us. I knew all her secrets and she knew all mine,” best friend Ashlei Phelps said.
Shane Swiney was driving the ATV Monday night when he missed a left curve on a private trail off Barb Hollow Road and went airborne, striking several trees before the ATV landed at the bottom of a hill. Swiney and his passenger, April Dawn Stillwell, were thrown from the ATV. Stillwell died at the scene, while Swiney was taken to an area hospital by Rural/Metro with non-life-threatening injuries. Neither rider was wearing a helmet.
