Three people were injured Saturday afternoon after their car went off the road on Braswell Lane and struck a tree.
Central dispatch received the call at 4:28 p.m.
Trooper Dewaine Jennings of the Tennessee Highway Patrol said 20 year Brittany Leanna Mingle of Liberty was driving west in a Chevrolet Monte Carlo when she lost control, left the roadway to the right, and struck a large tree nearly head-on.
Mingle and passengers of the car, 21 year old Jonathan Travis Wann of Liberty and his brother, 25 year old Joseph Travis Wann of Smithville were transported by DeKalb EMS to DeKalb Community Hospital.
Mingle told Trooper Jennings that she had been having brake problems and was enroute to have some repairs made to the car.
In addition to Trooper Jennings, others on the scene were members of the county volunteer fire department, Smithville Police Department, Constable Johnny King, and the Sheriff's Department.
