A two-vehicle collision in front of the Winchester Walmart on Saturday night temporarily disrupted traffic and saw two transported by ambulance to the Southern Tennessee Regional Health System hospital.

According to Assistant Chief Chuck Williams of the Decherd Fire Department, responders from the Decherd Police and Fire departments were dispatched along with ambulances from A&E Emergency Services at approximately 6:01 p.m. on Saturday.

The accident occurred at the intersection of Highway 127 and Highway 41A at the red light in front of the Winchester Walmart.

Officers with the Decherd Police Department blocked and directed traffic throughout the duration of the incident to protect those involved in the wreck and first responders.

According to Williams, it was initially believed that the victims were entrapped in one or more vehicles.

However, Decherd Fire Department Captain Daniel Meaker arrived on the scene and confirmed that that there was no entrapment, but there were victims in need of medical attention.

Decherd first responders provided emergency medical care until paramedics and EMT’s from A&E Emergency Services arrived. 

Two patients were transported by ambulance to Southern Tennessee Regional Health System, Williams said.

The names of those involved in the collision were not available at the time of writing.
