Two women and three children were involved in a crash Sunday morning on Four Seasons Road.

Trooper Bobby Johnson of the Tennessee Highway Patrol told WJLE that 21 year old Takeshia Castillejos of Smithville was west on Four Seasons Road in a 2012 Honda Civic when she crossed the center line and struck an eastbound 2012 Chevy Equinox, driven by 38 year old Desiree Ferrell of Smithville.

Castillejos' three month old daughter was with her along with two other children, a nine year old and a six year old. Both girls.

Upon impact, Ferrell's vehicle overturned and came to rest on its side in a ditch. Ferrell couldn't get out of the vehicle on her own. Members of the DeKalb County Volunteer Fire Department were called to the scene to perform extrication services.

Ferrell was taken by DeKalb EMS to meet a helicopter which landed near the scene. She was reportedly airlifted to Vanderbilt Hospital.

Castillejos was taken by DeKalb EMS to DeKalb Community Hospital and later to Vanderbilt Hospital by ground ambulance. The children were not hurt.
