A Livingston man was injured Friday in a motor vehicle crash around 3 p.m. Friday, Sept. 18.
According to Tennessee Highway Patrol’s preliminary incident description, a 2006 Hyundai Sonata, driven by Caleb Lang, 31, of Hilham, was stopped in the eastbound lane of Hilham Highway awaiting an ambulance that was traveling westbound to pass.
A 2007 Mercury Milan, driven by Ronald Coleman, 77, of Livingston, was stopped in the traffic lane behind Lang, as Johnny Cantrell, 40, of Hilham, was driving a 1999 Ford F150 also eastbound on Hilham Highway.
The truck struck the Mercury in the rear and it traveled across the roadway into the westbound ditch. Coleman, who was wearing a seatbelt, ended up in the passenger seat after the collision and had to be extricated from his vehicle.
After the initial collision, the Ford truck continued forward and struck the Hyundai in the rear.
Coleman sustained injury in the crash.
Lang, who was wearing a seatbelt, and Cantrell, who was also wearing a seatbelt, were apparently uninjured.
Cantrell was charged with Failure to use Due Care.
The incident was investigated by Trooper Darren Butler.
