Traffic Division Investigates Multiple Vehicle Accident on Hixson Pike
Hamilton County, TN – Earlier this morning at approximately 7:15 am, Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Investigators responded to a multiple vehicle crash in the 7300 block of Hixson Pike. Upon arrival of patrol units it was discovered, both parties were trapped in their vehicles off the roadway. Due to a large amount of debris on the roadway, a portion of Hixson Pike was closed for several hours.
According to the preliminary investigation, a Nissan Maxima was traveling north bound on Hixson Pike when the vehicle crossed the center line striking a Chevrolet Impala head on in the south bound lane of Hixson Pike. Both parties were extricated from their vehicles and transported to a local hospital with what are considered serious, but non-life threatening injuries.
The HCSO would like to offer our appreciation to the Dallas Bay Volunteer Fire Department, Soddy Daisy Fire Department, Chattanooga Fire Department, and TDOT, for their assistance in responding to this accident and helping to re-open Hixson Pike in a timely manner.
