A 74 year old Smithville man was injured after he wrecked his pickup truck on Highway 70 east Thursday afternoon.
Lieutenant Brian Lawson of the Tennessee Highway Patrol says Darwin Gard of Pack Circle was driving west on Highway 70 in a 2000 Chevy Silverado pickup truck when he lost control while negotiating a curve, overcorrected, and went into a yaw. The truck went off the southside of the highway and overturned one time, coming to rest on it's top off an embankment.
Gard was wearing his seatbelt and was not ejected.
He was taken by DeKalb EMS to DeKalb Community Hospital where he was treated and released.
