One person transported by LifeStar following Union County injury accident

MAYNARDVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – One person is being transported to the hospital with serious injuries by LifeStar after a rollover accident Sunday morning on Tazewell Pike at Ailor Gap in Union County.

Tennessee Highway Patrol says the driver of the car reportedly ran off the side of the road, struck a utility pole and flipped causing the driver to be ejected.

THP says the driver, Nathan Vedder, 48,  has been charged with DUI, not wearing a seat belt and driving with no driver’s license.

The current condition of the victim has not yet been released.

Roads closed at around noon Sunday so crews could clean up the wreck and assist one person who was trapped inside their vehicle.
