The Tennessee Highway Patrol and paramedics responded to a single vehicle accident on I-40 in Cumberland County this afternoon. Trooper Justin Mote states in his report a automobile driven by 18-year-old Lindsay Threadgill of Crossville was traveling west at the 326 mile marker when she ran off the road and struck an embankment. The impact caused the Ford she was operating to roll over. Threadgill, who was restrained at the time of the crash, was flown from the scene by an air medical helicopter to a trauma center for treatment of injuries. Westbound lanes were closed at the scene for about an hour as a result.
