A single-vehicle wreck on Stokes Chapel Road in Todd County Monday afternoon severely injured an Elkton man.
Todd County Sheriff Joey Johnson says the incident happened just before 6 near the Hightower Road intersection. Sheriff Johnson says 57-year old Alejandro Oliva of South Main Street, Elkton failed to negotiate a curve in his mini-van and ran off the pavement, causing it to turn onto its side.
Oliva sustained a severe cut to the head and was flown by Air Evac to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Sheriff Johnson said Oliva’s injuries did not appear to be life-threatening and that alcohol may have been a factor.
