A man is in critical condition at Vanderbilt University Medical Center after being involved in a single-vehicle wreck last night on Crossland Avenue in Clarksville.
Clarksville Police say around 8:22 p.m. a 20-year old man was driving a 1988 Chevy S-10 and was traveling west on Crossland Avenue when his vehicle went off the right side of the roadway onto the sidewalk, hit a utility pole and came to rest at the intersection of Crossland and Gracey Avenues.
As a result of the wreck, the man was partially ejected out of the driver’s side window.
Police say it took emergency responders about 25 minutes to extricate the man from the truck.
He was taken by Lifeflight to Vanderbilt in critical condition with internal, head and leg injuries with the man the only occupant in the truck.
Police say the driver was not wearing a seatbelt and that alcohol may have been a factor in the wreck.
