One Injured in Monday Afternoon Wreck

One person was transported to DeKalb Community Hospital after a two vehicle accident Monday afternoon on Highway 56 south.
62 year old Wanda Wallace of Smithville was treated. Her injuries were not believed to be life threatening.
According to Trooper Brandon Jackson of the Tennessee Highway Patrol, Wallace was driving south in a Chevy Malibu as 37 year old Pedro Gonzales of Smithville was traveling north in an F-150 pickup truck. Trooper Jackson told WJLE that Gonzales ran off the right side of the highway and overcorrected into the path of Wallace’s car. The Malibu struck the pickup toward the rear on the passenger side and came to rest in the southbound lane facing west. The truck went off the west side of the highway into a field.
Gonzales was not injured.
Trooper Jackson said charges are pending against Gonzales.
