Three men were injured in a two vehicle crash Thursday afternoon in the Blue Springs Community in front of the Bethel Methodist Church
57 year old Norman Hendrix of Dowelltown and 64 year old Eddie Malone of Smithville were transported to DeKalb Community Hospital by DeKalb EMS. 47 year old Jeffery Stubbe of Smithville was taken to the hospital by a private vehicle.
Trooper Craig Wilkerson of the Tennessee Highway Patrol told WJLE that Stubbe was driving a 2002 Nissan Altima south on Blue Springs Road when he apparently failed to yield to a 2003 GMC Sierra, driven by Hendrix who was east on Bethel Road. Malone was a passenger with Hendrix. After impact at the intersection, Hendrix' truck rolled over at least once and came to rest upright on its wheels. All three men were cited for not wearing their seatbelts.
