Three people were injured Monday morning in a chain-reaction wreck in front of Warren County Memorial Airport.
Taken to River Park Hospital by the Warren County Emergency Ambulance Service for treatment of non-lifethreating injuries were Judy Green and her two passengers, Bobby and J.W. Mayes, all of whom were sandwiched in the middle vehicle of the three-car crash.
According to highway patrolman Ronnie Simmons, the wreck happened in front of the airport on Nashville Highway just before noon Monday as Caroline Taylor was slowing her 2007 Lexus to make a turn into the airport parking lot. Behind her, also in the westbound lane (heading away from McMinnville) Green was also slowing in her 2003 Chevy Blazer.
However, the third car, a 1994 Jeep driven by Vickie Bouldin, failed to see the two vehicles slowing in front of her and slammed into the rear of the Green vehicle. The impact pushed the Green vehicle into the Taylor vehicle causing the three-car wreck.
Traffic on the section of highway experienced delays as emergency personnel removed the injured from their vehicles.
