2 injured in head-on collision in Coffee County

COFFEE COUNTY, Tenn. - Two people were injured in a head-on collision Wednesday morning after a driver swerved to miss a downed tree lying in the roadway.

It happened just before 8 a.m. on Model Road in Coffee County.

Authorities said Nathan Everhart swerved as he topped the crest of a hill in an effort to avoid striking the tree.

As he swerved to miss the tree, Everhart’s 2006 Ford Fusion struck a 1998 Chevrolet Suburban driven Anita Patterson.

Both Patterson and Everhart were airlifted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville for their injuries.

Their conditions were not immediately released.  

A three-year-old child traveling with Patterson was also transported to a local hospital as a precaution.
