A 21 year old man was injured Friday morning in a one vehicle accident on Keltonburg Road.
Central dispatch received the call at 6:15 a.m.
Trooper Darrell Knowles of the Tennessee Highway Patrol said that Joshua Cantrell was driving east on Keltonburg Road in a Dodge Ram pickup truck when he went across the road and struck a ditch and culvert. The truck came to a stop in the ditch on the north side of the road. Cantrell, who suffered a head injury, was taken by DeKalb EMS to DeKalb Community Hospital.
According to Trooper Knowles, Cantrell had completed second shift factory work and then did some work on a car before heading home. He apparently fell asleep at the wheel, resulting in the accident. Cantrell did have on a seatbelt but Trooper Knowles said he wasn't wearing it properly.
