Trigg County Teenager
Injured In Friday Afternoon Crash
A Trigg County teenager was air lifted to a Nashville hospital following a Friday afternoon crash on Caledonia Road. According to Trigg County Sheriff's Department Sgt. Mark Nichols, 17-year old Hunter Allen, of Cadiz, was westbound on Caledonia Road when he topped a hill and met another vehicle driving in his lane.
Allen ran off the right side of the road in an attempt to avoid a collision, over-corrected, and ran off the opposite side of the roadway, where he hit two trees, with the truck catching fire. Allen was able to get out of the truck before it was completely engulfed in flames. Allen was flown to Vanderbilt Medical Center, where he was treated for a leg injury.
