Two airlifted in separate Sunday crashes
Emergency personnel work to extricate a 17-year-old from his vehicle after a Sunday crash.
An unidentified teenage boy was airlifted after two vehicles collided near the intersection of Hurricane Ridge and Highway 70 Sunday afternoon. According to Trooper Mark Jones of the Tennessee Highway Patrol, the 17 year old boy, driving a 2007 Pontiac G5, pulled out from Hurricane Ridge Road to go east on Highway 70 when he was struck by a westbound 1999 Ford F-150 driven by Steven Glynn, 45. The DeKalb County Volunteer Fire Department’s Extrication and Rescue Team was called to remove the trapped teenager, who was flown to Vanderbilt Medical Center.
