SMITH COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — First responders from Smith County spent part of their Sunday morning saving multiple people who got trapped inside a car because of a wreck.

The Smith County Rescue Squad said its members — along with personnel from New Middleton Fire, Smith EMS, and law enforcement — were dispatched at approximately 7:16 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 9 after a car had rolled over and crashed.

According to officials, two people were removed from the car, treated by EMS, and brought to medical facilities with serious injuries. There was also a third person who was transported for evaluation.

In addition, the sheriff’s office reportedly took a cat that was inside the vehicle to a local veterinarian so it could be taken care of until its owners pick it up.
