Heavy damage

An Estill Springs motorist was injured and transported to Southern Tennessee Regional Health System-Winchester by an A&E Emergency Services LLC ambulance on Monday night following a two-vehicle collision with entrapment which occurred on AEDC Road near Decherd-Estill Road.

According to officials at the scene of the accident, the two vehicles involved in the accident were a Toyota Corolla and a Dodge Ram pickup truck, and the impact caused the door on the driver’s side of the Corolla to be pinned shut.

Firefighters with the Decherd Fire Department used the Jaws of Life tool to cut the pinned door from the Corolla to gain access to the injured driver, officials said.

According to first responders, the injured motorist was treated at the scene by an A&E Emergency Services LLC Advanced Life Support crew before being transported to STRHS-Winchester.

Though damage was extensive to the Dodge Ram pickup truck, the driver and occupants of the truck were not injured, firefighters said.

Responding agencies included the Decherd Police and Fire departments, the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department and A&E Emergency Services LLC.
