A motorcycle operated by 20-year-old Elizabeth Pollock of Decherd collided with a Chrysler van operated by a Tullahoma woman on the afternoon of April 7. Pollock was injured in the crash.

A crash on Highway 130 outside the Tullahoma city limits on April 7 left one woman injured and caused traffic delays for a few hours.

Crews from the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, North Franklin County Volunteer Fire Department and Tennessee Highway Patrol responded to the wreck at the intersection of Highway 130 and Blackburn Lane in North Franklin County at 1:18 p.m. on April 7.

According to the preliminary reports from the Tennessee Highway Patrol, a 2018 Honda motorcycle operated by Elizabeth Pollock, 20, of Decherd, and a 2014 Chrysler Town and Country van, operated by Amy Shuey, 31, of Tullahoma, were both traveling north on the highway when Pollock attempted to pass Shuey. Shuey was attempting to turn left onto Blackburn Lane as Pollock was attempting to pass, causing Pollock to hit the Chrysler on the left side.

Shuey was believed to be wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash.

Traffic from both directions was stopped on the highway when law enforcement crews arrived on the scene. Pollock was transported via an A&E Medical Service ambulance to the North Franklin County Volunteer Fire Department where a Vanderbilt LifeFlight helicopter landed to transport her to a hospital for treatment.

No charges have been filed against Pollock, according to the preliminary report.
