Overturned milk tanker results in airlift
A Decherd, Tennessee man was airlifted after the milk tanker he was driving overturned on Hickman Road Sunday. According to Trooper Chris Delong of the Tennessee Highway Patrol, James Elliott, 65, lost control of the tractor-trailer and overturned in a field north of Temperance Hall. DeLong said Elliott was traveling south on Highway 264 when his 2006 Freightliner left the roadway on the right side and went through a barbed wire fence while turning almost completely over with the cab and trailer still attached.
