A 19 year old woman was airlifted after a two car wreck on Whorton Springs Road Saturday.

Trooper Dewaine Jennings of the Tennessee Highway Patrol told WJLE that Hannah Brooke Green of Smithville was driving east on Whorton Springs Road in a 2009 Nissan Altima as 44 year old Victor Romo of Smithville was west in a 1998 Nissan Altima. The two cars made impact in a curve on a small bridge.

Green and Romo were taken to DeKalb Community Hospital by DeKalb EMS. Green was later airlifted by helicopter ambulance from the local hospital and flown to Vanderbilt Hospital.

Passengers of the Romo car, 24 year old Fabian Garcia and 22 year old Alberto Romo were apparently not injured.

Meanwhile, Smithville Police Officer Chip Avera and Corporal Travis Bryant investigated a two vehicle accident Saturday at the intersection of West Broad Street and Juniper Lane.

Officer Avera told WJLE that 56 year old Mickey Hobbs of Smithville, driving a 1999 Ford Windstar, was attempting to cross Broad Street from South Juniper Lane to North Juniper Lane when he pulled into the path of a westbound 1993 Toyota pickup, driven by 27 year old Lydia Price of Smithville. Price's vehicle hit Hobb's automobile in the passenger side.

Price was transported to the hospital by DeKalb EMS. Hobbs went to the hospital by private vehicle.

Officer Avera said Hobbs was issued a citation for violation of the financial responsibility law (no insurance).

Members of the Smithville Volunteer Fire Department were also on the scene to assist.
