A Smithville man escaped serious injury in a pickup truck crash Tuesday on Bright Hill Road.
Sergeant Eric McCormick of the Tennessee Highway Partrol said 26 year old Brandon Rackley was driving a 1987 Chevy S-10 pickup truck west on Bright Hill Road when he ran off the right side of the road and slid head-on into a utility pole. Rackley, who refused treatment, was wearing his seatbelt.
Rackley was charged with driving under the influence, simple possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of drugs (pills) without a prescription, and failure to exercise due care.
He will make a court appearance on April 17.
