Two men were injured just before 5 p.m. Thursday in a jarring crash between a car and a tractor-trailer on southbound Interstate 81.

The collision happened between mile markers 28 and 29, the Tennessee Highway Patrol said in a preliminary report.

The report said that a Kenworth tractor-trailer driven by 66-year-old Marion G. Yats, of Midland, Mich., was in the left lane of I-81 attempting to merge.

The 18-wheeler collided with a 2000 Nissan Sentra sedan driven by 43-year-old Jorge Garcia, of Morristown.

Car passenger Jorge Guzeman was flown by Wings Air Rescue to Johnson City Medical Center. He was treated and later released, a hospital spokesman said.

Garcia was taken by Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Services to Takoma Regional Hospital. His condition was not available this morning.

Yats, who was not injured, was cited for failure to exercise due care and having no proof of insurance, according to troopers.

Harold Williamson, chief of the Mosheim Volunteer Fire Department, said in email that firefighters responded to a motor vehicle accident call "with one person trapped when we arrived."

Garcia was out of the car and on his feet, but Guzeman was "trapped by the door and dash crushed in on his legs," Williamson said.

"We extricated (Guzeman) with the assistance of the rescue squad," he said.

Meanwhile, firefighters set up a landing zone on I-81.

"Traffic was stopped while (Wings Air Rescue) was on the ground," Williamson said.

The rush-hour crash created a lengthy traffic backup in the southbound lanes of I-81, troopers stated.
