A 28 year old man was seriously injured in a Sunday morning crash around 6:46 a.m. on East Broad Street in Smithville.
Lieutenant Richard Jennings of the Smithville Police Department says David Gene Satterfield of Tracy City, but who is believed to reside in Smithville, was traveling west on East Broad Street in a 1991 Chevy S-10 pickup truck when he crossed into the eastbound lane, went off the highway, struck a curb, overturned, and clipped a utility pole. The truck came to rest upright in the parking lot of Disco Tienda Latina.
The Smithville Volunteer Fire Department was called to the scene to extricate Satterfield from the truck.
He was taken by DeKalb EMS to meet a Life Force Helicopter Ambulance which landed near the scene.
Satterfield was then airlifted to Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga.
