A 19 year old McMinnville man was injured in a one car accident around 1:49 p.m. Tuesday on Highway 56 south near Magness Road.
Trooper Charlie Caplinger of the Tennessee Highway Patrol says Jeffrey Allan Hillis was driving north on Highway 56 in a 1996 Pontiac Grand Am, going to work, when the car dropped off the right shoulder of the road, went into a ditch, struck a driveway culvert, and then overturned clipping a utility pole. The car came to rest on it's top off the road.
Hillis was taken by DeKalb EMS to Riverpark Hospital in McMinnville with a dislocated shoulder and other minor injuries.
Others on the scene providing assistance were members of the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department and DeKalb County Volunteer Fire Department.
Traffic was re-routed for several hours during the investigation and cleanup.
