Two Wilson County residents were transported to Vanderbilt Medical Center via LifeFlight helicopter on Tuesday night after being involved in an automobile accident on Sparta Pike near Eastover Road.

According to reports, the 24-year-old driver of a 1999 Honda Civic, who was identified as Justin Bair of Lebanon, was traveling northbound on Sparta Pike toward Lebanon just before 9:30 p.m. The report said the driver crossed the centerline directly in front of a 2008 Ford Focus traveling southbound, driven by Breanna England, 18, of Watertown.

England moved into the emergency lane to the right in an attempt to avoid being struck; however, the driver of the Civic continued into the emergency lane as well, crashing head-on into Englands vehicle.

Both parties were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash.

The report said that charges are pending Bair.
