3 injured in Stewart County crash


Three young people were injured, including two who were airlifted to the hospital, after a crash on Tuesday afternoon in Stewart County.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol says 19-year-old Jessie Cramer, of Paris, TN, was driving a 2008 Chevy Cobalt south on U.S. 79 near Bumpus Mills Road in Dover when the car crossed into the oncoming lane and struck a guardrail about 4 p.m.

Cramer and his 14-year-old sister were transported by medical helicopter to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Another passenger, 21-year-old Brittany Weldon, also of Paris, was transported to Gateway Medical Center by ambulance.

"Yes it is very hard to hear as a mother to hear that it's little ones like that," said Dover resident Karen Frederick.

THP said charges are pending an investigation, and no further information has been released.
