ROBBINS — A mother and her adult son have been airlifted to University of Tennessee Medical Center following a near-head-on collision with a fire truck in the Mountain View community Thursday afternoon.

The accident occurred as the South Scott Volunteer Fire Department was responding to a fire near the Black Creek neighborhood south of Mountain View.

The woman and her 26-year-old son — whose names have not been released pending an investigation by the Tennessee Highway Patrol — were occupants of a pickup truck that was north-bound on Mountain View Road and collided with a South Scott VFD fire engine at the intersection of Mountain View Road and Volunteer Drive, at the old Mountain View Baptist Church behind the old F.H. Shoemaker Store.
