Collegedale PD: Person killed, another taken to hospital after head-on crash in Ooltewah
Collegedale Police are investigating a head-on collision they say claimed one person's life and sent another person to the hospital Monday.
It happened on Lee Highway a quarter of a mile from the intersection at Edgmon Road.
Police spokeswoman Bridgette Raper tells us that the other person is believed to have non-life-threatening injuries.
Raper says this is the same area where just last week, a man was airlifted after police say he crashed into a garbage truck.
Just before 6:30 p.m., Collegedale Police announced that Lee Highway reopened to traffic.
At this time, police have not released the identities of those involved.
This is a developing story and will be updated as we learn more.
