A fifteen year old Alexandria boy was airlifted to Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville Tuesday evening after he was injured in an ATV accident with another vehicle near his home on Lower Helton Road.
Central dispatch received the call at 6:50 p.m.
Sergeant Mark Dial of the Tennessee Highway Patrol says Robert Austin Hale was coming out of the driveway of his home on a Honda 350 four wheeler, attempting to go west on Lower Helton Road, when he pulled into the path of a westbound 1999 Toyota Corolla, driven by 48 year old Timothy James Anderson.
Sergeant Dial says the car struck the ATV and Hale was ejected. Anderson was not injured.
DeKalb EMS treated Hale and took him to the helicopter landing zone on Brush Creek Road (Highway 53) about a mile from the accident scene, to await Vanderbilt Life Flight. Hale's injuries were not believed to be life threatening.
