Two people were injured in a traffic accident around 9:00 p.m. Tuesday night on old Highway 96 at Liberty.
Trooper Shannon Brinkley of the Tennessee Highway Patrol says Flint W. Gilley II of 1745 Bethel Road, Smithville was traveling south on Highway 96 in a 1994 Saturn when his vehicle impacted an oncoming 1998 Ford Escort driven by Jeffery M. Stone of 576 Prater Road, Smithville in the northbound lane.
Trooper Brinkley says after the collision, Stone's car came to rest in the northbound lane and Gilley's vehicle veered across the northbound lane and struck a guardrail.
Stone was transported by DeKalb EMS to DeKalb Community Hospital. Gilley, who was cited for driving left of center, suffered a slight ankle injury but refused treatment.
