A 60 year old Liberty man was injured around 3:00 p.m. Monday afternoon after he wrecked his truck on Highway 53 at Liberty.
Trooper Mike Phillips of the Tennessee Highway Patrol says Roy Myatt was driving a 1996 Chevy pickup truck south on Highway 53 when he went off the right side of the road, up an embankment, and struck a rock.
Myatt was airlifted from the scene by a helicopter ambulance and flown to Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga.
Members of DeKalb EMS and the DeKalb County Volunteer Fire Department were also on the scene.
