A two-vehicle wreck on Highway 109 in Wilson County on Thursday resulted in four people being transported to a hospital.

The accident reported occurred at about 2:30 p.m. near NW Williams Road.

According to an accident report from the Tennessee Highway Patrol, Tony Clayborne, 51, of Manchester, was driving a 2007 Ford F-150 pickup truck southbound on Hwy. 109 and failed to stop for traffic that had stopped ahead. He swerved to the left to avoid the stopped traffic and crossed the center line and struck head-on a 1999 Chevrolet 1500 pickup truck that was traveling northbound and driven by Joseph Deathridge, 56, of Gallatin.

After the collision, both vehicles came to rest facing east along the right side of the roadway, the accident report said.

Deathridge was traveling with Owen Deathridge, 86, of Goodlettsville. They were injured and were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville by Wilson County Emergency Management Agency ambulance.

Clayborne was taken to VUMC by LifeFlight helicopter for treatment of his injuries. Pamela Clayborne, 50, who was in the passenger’s seat, was taken to VUMC by ambulance.

THP said Mr. Clayborne and Joseph Deathridge were not wearing their seat belts.

Hwy. 109 was shut down in both directions while THP and emergency personnel worked the accident scene.

Mr. Clayborne faces seat belt and Roadways marked for traffic charges, and Joseph Deathridge faces a seat belt charge.
