A 36-year-old local woman was behind the wheel of a silver Trailblazer on Boyd Road when she lost control of the vehicle and it rolled multiple times, resulting in her being flown to Nashville by air ambulance, for medical treatment.
The wreck happened a little after 8:00 a.m. on Friday morning, July 17, around the 400 block of Boyd Road, which is between Tanyard Road and Union Camp, in Macon County.
According to Tennessee Highway Patrol wreck investigator Trooper Cody Ballard, Kristy Stacey, of Lafayette, was driving a 2004 Chevy Trailblazer west on Boyd Road, when she lost control and struck an embankment, causing the Chevy to roll multiple times. The vehicle came to final rest on the north side.

“This is an on-going investigation,” stated Trooper Ballard.
