Two people escaped injury in a car crash Tuesday night on West Broad Street near Walmart.

According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, 32-year-old Christopher Price of Smithville was traveling west in a 2009 Toyota FJ Cruiser attempting to make a left turn into the Walmart parking lot when he crossed the path of an eastbound 2018 Buick SUV driven by 52-year-old Scott Odom of Sparta who was approaching the entrance to Walmart. The collision caused Price’s vehicle to overturn onto its left side. Odom’s automobile spun around and came to a final rest facing west in the eastbound lanes of travel. Neither driver suffered any injuries.

The crash was investigated by Trooper Bobby Johnson and assisted by THP Lieutenant Dewaine Jennings and THP Lieutenant Charlie Caplinger
