La Vergne, TN — A woman from Canton was killed near La Vergne on I-24 after a fatal, bizarre accident that happened on Monday, September 23, 2013. Police said that Anne Hudson, 77, was killed after the car she was riding in was hit by the driveshaft from a pickup truck on I-24.
The accident happened at about 10:30 a.m. on Monday morning, southeast of Nashville. Hudson was a passenger in a car that was driving along I-24 when an eastbound Dodge Ram pickup truck lost its driveshaft and it fell to the roadway.
The large piece of mechanical equipment then struck another car before flying into the windshield of a Chevrolet Equinox that was being driven by 77-year old Leory Hudson. The driveshaft struck Anne Hudson, who was a passenger in the Chevrolet, and she died from her injuries.
Police said that the truck driver was located and charged for the accident, but no specific details were given. Further investigation was expected.
