The call came in to 911 at 9:40am and several agencies responded including the Adams Fire Department, the Robertson County Emergency Management Agency, the Robertson County Sheriff’s Office, Robertson County EMS and the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
There were two people in the passenger vehicle, a 1993 Honda Accord, (Christopher Peters, 33, and Lacercia Renea Hunt, 31, both from Cedar Hill) both were thrown against the windshield in the collision. According to the THP they were not wearing their seat-belts.
According to Robertson County EMS Assistant Director Russell Gupton, “One female passenger suffered critical injuries and was transported by aircraft to Vanderbilt. A male in the same vehicle was transported by Robertson County EMS to Vanderbilt with potentially serious injuries. A male driver of the second vehicle was transported to NorthCrest for initial treatment. He was later transported by ambulance to Vanderbilt Medical Center for further treatment of injuries sustained in the accident.”
According to Adams Fire Chief Ray Brown, the driver of the pickup (Horace Newberry, 61 also of Cedar Hill) was pinned in the vehicle (a 1999 GMC Sierra) and had to be extricated. The THP indicates that Newberry was wearing his safety-belt.
As far as a cause of the accident, the THP indicates that the passenger vehicle crossed the center line and impacted the pickup truck head-on. The THP also said that the vehicle may have been traveling too fast for road conditions. According to the THP, the pickup truck was not moving at the time of the impact.
According to the THP, drugs or alcohol were not considered to be a factor in the accident.
We are still waiting on an update on the condition of all three passengers but some reports indicate that they are all out of the woods.
