Accident In Coopertown Thursday Sends Two To Area Hospitals
Around 3:30 Thursday afternoon Sergeant Steven McDougal of the Coopertown Police department came across an accident scene on 431 south. As McDougal looked over the wreck (which had just occurred moments earlier) it was clear that it involved injuries. The passenger of the Kia was trapped inside the vehicle and had to be “cut out” by emergency crews. It was a rear end collision that sent the Kia flying over 50 or 60 feet.
The Kia, with two people on board (a married couple in their 40’s) were heading North bound on Tom Austin and were stopped preparing to make a left turn onto old hwy 431 south when they were rear-ended by a Ford van. The collision knocked the Kia over the oncoming lane and into the grass area off the road. The driver of the van ( a male) was not injured, according to police. Both occupants in the Kia were transported via EMS. The driver of the Kia went to NorthCrest and his wife was taken to Vanderbilt. The severity of their injuries are unknown at this time. The two people in the Kia were on their way to pick up their twin grandchildren, it was fortunate that the children were not in the vehicle police told Smokey.
