Hannah Anthony Killed in Tractor-Trailer Accident in Benton County, TN
Benton County, TN -- February 14, 2023, Hannah Anthony was killed after an accident with a tractor-trailer.
According to details provided by WKRN, Tennessee Highway Patrol apparently went to the scene sometime after 8:30 p.m. It happened along Highway 641. The exact details surrounding the crash are unavailable at this time. Reports say only that a vehicle driven by 36-year-old Hannah Anthony and a tractor-trailer collided. As a result, Anthony succumbed to fatal injuries. A child in the vehicle was not harmed, police said.
I can only hope that authorities are working behind the scenes to get more answers than this. I certainly don't feel any kind of entitlement to know the facts. It's the family I'm worried about. I can't begin to count how many times families have come to me weeks or months following a crash empty handed because they waited for details from authorities that never came. Why does that happen?
Put simply, not every department prioritizes accident reconstruction, and even the ones that do can make mistakes. Whether it's a lack of time, personnel, or proper equipment, something as complex as a deadly truck wreck can slip through the cracks. As understandable as that may be, though, it's unacceptable. I have no particular reason to doubt authorities here, however, so my hope is they're taking proper steps to get answers about why a woman was taken from her loved ones far too soon.
