A Middle Tennessee Natural Gas employee escaped serious injury during a three-vehicle collision that occurred Friday afternoon. 

McMinnville Police Department officer Kyle Evans said Andrew Williams, 31, was unconscious at the scene and his condition was initially unknown.

“When the call first went out, he was reported as unconscious. By the time paramedics prepared him for transport, he was alert, talkative and expected to make a full recovery with minor injuries,” said officer Evans. “Mr. Williams was the only one transported for treatment.”

Williams was traveling toward Court Square on West Main Street in a blue Ford F150 company truck. The wreck occurred as he entered the intersection with S. High Street. 

“According to witnesses, the driver of the blue, Natural Gas truck ran the red light,” said Evans. 

The truck struck a Chevy Tahoe driven by Tara Robertson, 48, who was traveling southbound on S. High Street. 

“The impact pushed the SUV into the oncoming lane and it struck a Chevy truck that was traveling in the opposite direction,” said Evans. 

John Douglass, 73, was the driver of the Chevy truck. 

All three drivers are Warren County residents. The incident occurred at approximately 2 p.m. No citations were given at the scene.
