Cherokee dancer electrocuted and killed in food truck

A well-known Cherokee dancer has been killed in an electrocution accident. 45-year-old Scott Crisp of McMinn County was a widely-known traditional dancer, storyteller and Cherokee historian. He was working on his catering truck just outside Etowah Monday with his friend Kimbal Hyde. Hyde says Crisp told him a metal table in the truck was shocking him, and when Crisp started to move wiring under the table, he began yelling for help. Hyde kicked the wires away, called 911 and stared CPR, but Crisp was unresponsive and died at the hospital. He’ll be buried today at McMinn Memory Gardens.
