Putnam Women Seriously Injured in Wreck

Two Putnam County women were seriously injured in a single-vehicle crash on a rural Cumberland County road over the weekend. According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, 32-year-old Jenna Stultz of Cookeville was the most seriously injured. But also being treated is 28-year-old Misty Stultz of Monterey. According to THP Trooper Jack Alderman, the wreck occurred on Jim Garrett Rd. near the Mayland community around 2:20 p.m. Saturday when a 2002 Acura traveling south left the road on the right side, overcorrected and spun out of control, slamming into a ditch and going airborne, flipping over several times. Both occupants were ejected from the vehicle. THP's Critical Incident Response Team is assisting in the investigation, which is continuing, Alderman said. Both victims were airlifted from near the scene and flown to Erlanger Medical Center in Chattanooga.
