Trooper Chris Delong of the Tennessee Highway Patrol told WJLE that 19 year old Dustin Cole of Sparta was traveling north on Highway 96 in a 2007 Mazda when he failed to stop at the intersection and crossed into the path of a 2006 Toyota Camry driven by 57 year old Tomomi McDowell of Dowelltown, who was traveling east on Highway 70. 18 year old Sarah Webb of Sparta was a passenger with Cole.
Both McDowell and Webb were taken by DeKalb EMS to DeKalb Community Hospital. Cole was not injured. He was cited for failure to yield.
Others on the scene were members of the Liberty Station of the DeKalb County Volunteer Fire Department and DeKalb Sheriff’s deputies.
Meanwhile, a Smithville woman was involved in a one car accident Monday on Braswell Lane.
Captain Steven Leffew of the Smithville Police Department told WJLE that 32 year old Michelle Brawley was driving west on Braswell Lane in a 2003 Nissan Altima when the right front tire went off the road. She was unable to get control and struck a culvert. She was taken by DeKalb EMS to the hospital.
