DECHERD, TN – A teenager from Tullahoma was killed and two other passengers were seriously injured following a one-vehicle crash that took place in Decherd at around 8:45 p.m. on Saturday, reports the Tullahoma News.
Officials said that a red Infiniti G37, driven by 20-year old Michael Patillo, collided with a power pole near Carmean Family Dental while traveling at a high speed down Decherd Boulevard. The vehicle subsequently struck a large tree.
Decherd firefighters responded to the crash and were able to remove the driver and both passengers using the Jaws of Life. According to officials, 18-year old Casey Gann, a resident of Tullahoma, was the sole passenger killed in the crash, and was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver and a juvenile passenger, were taken by ambulance to North Middle School, where responders stabilized their conditions before a helicopter airlifted them to Erlanger in Chattanooga.
The circumstances surrounding the crash are still under investigation. We will update this blog should that information become available.
