Two people escaped serious injury in a traffic accident on the Old Blue Springs Road Tuesday.

Lieutenant Brian Lawson of the Tennessee Highway Patrol says 20 year old Johnathan Keith of New Home Road, Smithville was not injured but 42 year old Betty Lawson of 302 Big Woods Road, Smithville was taken by Warren County EMS to DeKalb Community Hospital with minor injuries. She was treated and released.

According to Lieutenant Lawson, Keith was driving north on the Old Blue Springs Road in a 1997 Olds and partially crossed into the southbound lane while negotiating a curve which caused the two vehicles to sideswipe.

Lawson's vehicle, a 2001 Ford Explorer, overturned on it's top in the middle of the road. Keith's car came to rest in the northbound lane.

Members of the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department and DeKalb County Volunteer Fire Department also came to the scene to assist.

Both drivers were wearing their seatbelts. There were no charges or citations.
