Girl saves family after van rolls over

An 11 year-old Overton County girl prevented what could have been tragedy after a 10:30 a.m. wreck Friday, Aug. 17.


Brooklyn Tidwell and her sister, Madison, 3, were with their grandfather Earley Barnett, 54, who was traveling west on Hickory Lane in Clay County. Barnett had just dropped off his son-in-law and was backing up the hill when he hit loose gravel and turned the van he was driving over on its side.


Brooklyn climbed out of the van and ran approximately a quarter of a mile to where her father was working to get help.


Celina EMS, Fire and Rescue, Baptist Ridge EMS, and Tennessee Highway Patrol responded to the incident.


Barnett and Brooklyn were transported to Livingston Regional Hospital where they were treated and released. Madison was apparently uninjured.

Cookeville man arrested
for area burglaries


Officers of Livingston Police Department were summoned, on late Saturday afternoon, Aug. 18 to the Martin Street Apartment area after residents reported suspicious activity there.


Patrolman Jonathan Storie arrived and arrested Anthony Campbell, 25, of Cookeville, after he was observed burglarizing vehicles in the parking lot. Detective Tim Poore was called to the scene and additional stolen property was discovered in an apartment there.


Livingston Police Chief Phillips stated in response to the increase in burglaries the last few months not only have patrols increased but citizen awareness has also increased. Officers on patrol have been asking citizens to report suspicious activity, just as in this case where a resident saw something that caught their attention and it was reported.


With the arrest of Campbell, Livingston Police have been able to solve several area burglaries with the discovery of reported stolen property from those cases. Officers discovered fishing rods and reels, CD radios, golf clubs, and power tools, at a nearby residence.


Campbell was lodged in Overton County Jail on 3 counts of Burglary of an Auto, Theft of Property over $1,000, Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Theft of Property under $500.


Livingston Police also took Amy K. Leppert, 23, of Livingston, into custody on charges of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Burglary of an Auto, Theft of Property over $1,000, and Possession of Marijuana.
Chief Phillips emphasized that stepped up patrols will continue and citizens are urged to report any suspicious activity in their area to the Livingston Police Department at 823-6496.
