WILSON COUNTY, Tenn. – Three people were injured in a crash involving three vehicles on a major highway in Wilson County on Wednesday morning.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol said a 1993 Buick  attempted to turn right onto Highway 109 from Academy Road without stopping at a stop sign, and was struck by a tractor trailer traveling on 109 around 7 a.m.

The impact pushed the car into a 2003 Buick, which was traveling on the other side of the highway.

The driver of the 1993 Buick, 19-year-old Maximillio Macheca, was taken by LifeFlight to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

THP officials said he was wearing a seatbelt. His passenger, 20-year-old Grant Jones, and the driver of the 2003 Buick, 66-year-old Diane Cothran, were taken by ambulance to University Medical Center.

The driver of the tractor trailer, John Elmore, was not injured.

THP said charges were pending against Macheca.
