Four People Involved in Wednesday Night Crash

Four people were involved in a two car crash Wednesday night on Highway 146 near the Smithville city limits.
Trooper Chris Delong of the Tennessee Highway Patrol told WJLE that 48 year old Melisa Petty of Smithville was traveling north in a 2007 Nissan Altima when she crossed into the southbound lane and struck an oncoming 1994 Ford Mustang driven by 36 year old Sunshine Martin of Smithville. Martin’s seven year old daughter was a passenger with her. Petty’s daughter, 28 year old Misty Ferrell of Smithville was in the car with her.
Members of the DeKalb County Volunteer Fire Department’s rescue team were called to perform extrication as Martin was trapped in her car. She was taken by DeKalb EMS to St. Thomas DeKalb Hospital and later transported by ground ambulance to Vanderbilt hospital. The others were not seriously injured.
Trooper Delong said Petty was cited for no insurance and for not exercising due care.
DeKalb EMS and the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department were also on the scene.
