Two women were treated and released at DeKalb Community Hospital after a two car crash Monday afternoon on East Broad Street in Smithville.
Trooper Allen England of the Tennessee Highway Patrol says 92 year old Ella May Delong Jones of Smithville was driving a 2005 Toyota Corolla attempting to cross Highway 70 from Third Street to Oak Street when her car struck the driver's side of a 2007 Ford Focus, driven by 56 year old Judy Faith Daniel of Smithville, who was traveling east on Highway 70.
Daniel's vehicle overturned on it's top and came to rest on the sidewalk at the corner of Highway 70 and Oak Street, while the Jones car came to rest in the parking lot of a car wash.
Both women were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the accident. Members of the Smithville Volunteer Fire Department's Extrication Team helped get Daniel out of her vehicle. She was not trapped but needed help getting out because she was restrained in her seat with the car upside down.
Both women were taken by DeKalb EMS to DeKalb Community Hospital where they were treated for minor injuries.
The accident was investigated by Trooper England and Trooper Dewaine Jennings of the Tennessee Highway Patrol. Others on the scene included DeKalb EMS, the Smithville Volunteer Fire Department, and the Smithville Police Department.
Trooper England says the eastbound lanes of Highway 70 were closed to traffic for a while during the investigation and cleanup
