A Livingston woman died in a three-vehicle crash on Jamestown Highway around 3 p.m. Tuesday, June 30.
According to Tennessee Highway Patrol’s preliminary information, a 1999 Acura ATL, driven by Marlita Scott, 79, of Livingston, came around a right curve on the wrong side of the road into the path of a 1996 Chevrolet K10 driven by Danny Ferrell, 65, of Livingston.
Ferrell “could not go right because of the guardrail” so he attempted to go left.
The Acura struck the right rear tire of the Chevrolet and continued to hit the guardrail and crossed back over into the path of a 2014 Subaru SUV, driven by Elizabeth Lugo, 39, of Jamestown, which hit the Acura in the driver’s side.
Scott died in the incident. She was not wearing a seatbelt, but in the trooper’s opinion, it would not have made a difference.
Ferrell, who was wearing a seatbelt, and Lugo, who was also wearing a seatbelt, were apparently uninjured in the incident.
The incident was investigated by Trooper Jamie Stephens.
