Two people and a small child were injured Tuesday afternoon after their truck traveling on State Route 59 in Tipton County and hit two trees.
The accident took place just before 4 p.m. west of Oakwood Drive.
Upon arrival of the crash site, Sgt. William Vandergrift of the Tennessee Highway Patrol said he noticed one person was laying outside the truck. The driver and a small child were trapped inside the truck.
Sgt. Vandergrift said first responders used the Jaws of Life to remove the adult and the child from inside the truck. Two medical helicopters were dispatched to the crash site.
The child was airlifted to Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in Memphis. The driver was also airlifted to The MED in Memphis.
The names of the injured or circumstances surrounding the crash have yet to be released.
