Authorities charged a man after a wreck Monday night that injured three people and three horses in Mt. Juliet. 

Frank Mach, 21, of Mt. Juliet, was charged with failure to exercise due care after an abrupt left turn caused the wreck at the intersection of Mt. Juliet Road and Breckenridge Road just after 6 p.m., according to the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

Mach was traveling north on Mt. Juliet Road and Ralph Glynn, 47, of Mt Juliet was traveling south. Glynn had a horse trailer attached to his Ford F-150 that had three horses inside.

Mach failed to yield to Glynn as he attempted to turn left onto Breckenridge Road, causing Glynn to hit Mach in the passenger side of his Toyota FJ Cruiser.

Mach’s vehicle was knocked back about 85 feet as a result of the impact.

Glynn’s vehicle left the right side of Mt. Juliet Road and struck a large stone wall.

The horses in the trailer attached to Glynn’s vehicle sustained minor injuries and were able to be removed safely from the trailer.

Emergency crews took Glynn and his wife, Sharon, by ambulance to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
