Local News

SUMNER COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — An 11-year-old child was transported by air to a Nashville hospital after a serious crash that also injured two other people in Westmoreland Thursday morning.

Sumner County Sheriff Sonny Weatherford said the single-vehicle crash was reported just before 7:30 a.m. on Pleasant Grove Road, not far from East John Davis Road.

Investigators determined the vehicle left the roadway, so the driver overcorrected and began to skid, eventually hitting an embankment. The vehicle then rolled over multiple times, before coming to a stop.

Sheriff Weatherford said an 11-year-old was ejected from the vehicle amid the collision and was airlifted to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt for treatment.

Two other people in the vehicle were also transported to a hospital by ground, but the extent of all injuries was not known.

No additional information was immediately released.
