Three people were injured in a two car crash Friday afternoon on Highway 70 in Liberty and another person was hurt in a separate accident Friday morning on Highway 70 near Sligo Bridge.

Trooper Allen England of the Tennessee Highway Patrol says 19 year old Kristy L. Grandstaff of 120 Lavergne Street, Alexandria and 19 year old David M. Branner of Nashville were airlifted from the scene in Liberty by Life Flight helicopter ambulance and flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

26 year old Joseph B. Trapp of Allen Ferry Road, Smithville was taken by DeKalb EMS to DeKalb Hospital where he was treated and released.

Trooper England says Grandstaff, the apparent driver of a 1995 Toyota Tercel, was attempting to make a left turn from Bratten Street onto Highway 70 when she pulled into the path of a 1996 Toyota Avalon, driven by Trapp, who was east on Highway 70.

Branner was a passenger of the Grandstaff vehicle.

The accident remains under investigation by the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

Meanwhile, 64 year old Barbara Dean Goodwin of Young Ridge Road, Sparta, was injured in a one vehicle accident Friday morning on Highway 70 near Sligo Bridge.

Trooper England says Goodwin was west on Highway 70 in a 2002 Toyota Sierra minivan when she failed to maintain the lane of travel, went off the road, crossed a ditch, hit an embankment, and overturned.

Goodwin was taken by DeKalb EMS to DeKalb Hospital where she was treated and released.
