The incident was reported Thursday morning on Lebanon Road and Powell Grove Road.

According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, 18-year-old Franklin Linder was driving east on Highway 70 when he started going off of the right side of the road. That's when, investigators said, Linder overcorrected and crossed the center line, hitting Deputy Thomas Ford's cruiser. A third vehicle heading westbound was unable to avoid the crash and was also involved. 

All three involved were taken to an area hospital, where they're expected to be OK. 

Investigators said there are charges pending against Linder.
