4 hurt in 7-car crash in Lebanon


A Lebanon chiropractor jumped into action after seeing people trapped inside a car.

Dr. Cris Corley was close by when seven cars got tangled up on Cumberland Street (U.S. Highway 231) around noon today.

One of the cars ended up upside-down. Corley said an elderly couple was trapped inside and he was able to pull them out.

"I cut the seatbelts to get her out. First I checked to make sure she didn't have any fractures," said Corley. "I had to take into account that the vehicle could catch on fire, so I made the decision to cut the seatbelt. It took us about 10 minutes to get her out."

Dispatchers said four people were transported to a local hospital with no life-threatening injuries.
