Failure to yield is being cited as the cause of a motor vehicle collision on New Nashville Highway at midday on Monday.
Involved in the crash were drivers, Kyler Walker, 25, and Jose Garcia, 31. Garcia’s teenage daughter was a sole passenger. All are Warren County residents.
According to Warren County Sheriff Department Major Jason Walker, the motor vehicle accident occurred at approximately 1:30 p.m. and was caused by failure to yield the right of way.
“Kyler Walker was traveling southbound on Pigeon Hill Road in a 2004 GMC truck,” said Walker. “He failed to yield at New Nashville Highway. He hit Garcia in the driver’s door.”
Garcia was traveling inbound.
The impact forced Garcia’s 2003 Ford Explorer to the right. It left the roadway and struck a tree. He was trapped in the wreckage. After being extricated by emergency personnel, Warren County EMS transported him to Saint Thomas River Park Hospital.
No other injuries were reported.
Walker was cited for failure to use due care.
