A 31 year old man was airlifted Friday night after his car crashed into the yard of a residence on Lee Braswell Road, hitting two trees and a vehicle parked in the driveway.
Sergeant Eric McCormick of the Tennessee Highway Patrol told WJLE that Jose Soto was west on Lee Braswell Road in a 2001 Cadillac when he went off the left side of the road and struck two trees in the yard of Glenn Ferrell and a Tennessee Department of Forestry Division vehicle parked in his driveway. Ferrell works for Forestry.
Soto was airlifted from near the scene by a helicopter ambulance and flown to Vanderbilt Hospital. Charges have been filed against him for driving under the influence, open container, no insurance, and failure to stay within his lane of travel.
