Four people were transported to area hospitals following a two-vehicle accident on I-75 South near the Anderson/Campbell County line Monday night.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol says that the crash involving a pickup and a car occurred at around 9 pm Monday. Two men and a five-year-old girl were in the Chevy pickup, while a female was the lone occupant of the Hyundai. The two men were flown by Lifestar to UT Medical Center for treatment of their injuries while the five-year-old was taken by ambulance after she managed to escape serious injury. The driver of the car was taken by ambulance to LaFollette Medical Center.
The names and conditions of those involved have not been released.
The southbound lanes of the interstate were closed for a couple of hours and at one point, when the Lifestar choppers landed, all lanes of the interstate were shut down. All lanes reopened at around 11 pm.
