A Knoxville man was injured when he crashed head-on into a garbage truck Wednesday.

The accident happened around 9:40 am on Loyston Road near Tolson Lane.

The Knox County Sheriff's Office says Lloyd Carroll, 48, was driving a 2011 Stratus that crossed the center line and hit a Tri-County Sanitation truck head on. Rescue crews had to cut Carroll from the wreckage and he was flown by Lifestar helicopter to UT Medical Center.

Two people in the truck were not injured.

Officers say charges are pending against Carroll.
