One Man Seriously Hurt in Chattanooga Crash
CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- Charges could be filed in a three car crash that threw a man from his vehicle, seriously injuring him.
The accident happened Tuesday at 6pm on Ashland Terrace. Police say 20-year-old Frank Lamacchia's car was hit by another vehicle traveling in the 900 block. Police say Lamacchia was trying to pull onto Ashland Terrace from a side street. The impact of the crash threw Lamacchia, who was not wearing a seatbelt, into the southbound lanes of Ashland Terrace.
The driver of the second vehicle, 19-year-old Corde Reynolds, and his passenger were also injured in the accident. They were both treated and released from Erlanger Hospital.
A third vehicle driven by William Furmon was also involved in the accident after the first impact. Police say Furmon tried to avoid the first two vehicles and hit the curb of the south bound lanes. He then hit a garbage can at 3609 Forrest Highland Drive and police say he left the scene.
Police believe Reynolds and Furmon may have been drag racing at the time of the accident but no charges have yet been filed.
