Woman seriously injured in crash on Highway 111

A Livingston woman was flown by Air Evac to Vanderbilt Hospital after a 2-vehicle crash on Highway 111 around 3:15 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 30.
According to reports, Velma Lancaster, 62, of Livingston, was driving a red Chevrolet Blazer south on Highway 111, as Kristie Whited, 29, was driving a silver TrailBlazer alongside. Witnesses stated that the vehicles bumped into each other.

The Lancaster vehicle went across the median and rolled several times as it crossed the northbound lane before coming to rest on the north side of the highway.

The Whited vehicle spun out, coming to rest facing north on the shoulder of the southbound lane.

Lancaster was taken to Vanderbilt Hospital, and two juvenile female passengers, ages 10 and 12, were transported to Livingston Regional Hospital for treatment of apparently minor injuries.

Whited was also transported to LRH for treatment. Passengers in the TrailBlazer, Jean Long, of Livingston, and a 6 month-old boy, were apparently uninjured.

Trooper Marty Philpot of Tennessee Highway Patrol investigated the incident.

Overton deputy arrested

An off-duty Overton County deputy sheriff has been jailed in Putnam County on two different charges stemming from alleged altercations at a residence off Highway 111.

John Quiton Mackie, 31, of Rickman, was charged in warrants taken by a female victim on two counts of domestic assault.

According to reports, Putnam Deputy Chuck Johnson, Deputy Sgt. Joe Nash, and Deputy Kim Keith were dispatched to a Highway 111 residence around 9:40 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 1. The victim alleged to deputies that her boyfriend, John Mackie, was intoxicated and that the two began arguing.

The victim stated that she told Mackie to leave and he would not. The victim picked up the phone, but she said Mackie unplugged it, and used his chest to bump her and threw her on the bed, leaving bruises.

She told deputies that later in the day another argument began about Mackie not leaving. When she started to pack Mackie’s pictures, she alleges that he became angry again and “chest bumped” her again, grabbed her, and the two fell to the ground. She told police that Mackie punched her on the left eyebrow.

Mackie was booked into Putnam County Jail on $2,000 bond, after being arrested at 2 .a.m Sunday, Sept. 2. He is set to appear in Putnam General Sessions Court on Monday, Sept. 24.
