Vehicle crashes within hours of each other sent three people to the hospital on Monday, Oct. 21.
According to Tennessee Highway Patrol’s preliminary incident information, Frankie Bybee, 46, of Livingston, was driving a 2014 Peterbilt west on Celina Highway around 11 a.m. when a 2013 Buick LaCrosse, driven by Windell Carter, 89, of Tompkinsville, KY, veered across the center line into the opposite lane of travel and struck the rear trailer axle of the semi-truck.
Carter was trapped in his vehicle and had to be extricated. He and a passenger in his vehicle were transported via Overton County Ambulance Service to Livingston Regional Hospital.
Bybee, who was wearing a seatbelt, was not injured.
The incident was investigated by THP Trooper Darren Butler.
Then around 12:40 p.m., Darrell Gulley, 47, of Livingston, was traveling west on Rock Crusher Road when he lost control of his Suzuki 4-wheeler, “which caused him to enter the east bound lane where his ATV began to roll,” the THP preliminary incident report states.
“Gulley was thrown from the ATV and he landed near the final rest of the ATV, which was in the east bound lane of Rock Crusher Road.”
Gulley was transported to Cookeville Regional Hospital by ambulance.
The incident was investigated by THP Trooper Toby Beaty.
