HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – One person was killed in a crash near Hendersonville Thursday morning.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol (THp) said the crash involved three vehicles and happened on Highway 31 or East Main Street near Country Club Drive. THP said a 62-year-old woman was driving eastbound in a 2006 Ford Mustang when she lost control of the vehicle and crossed the double yellow lines.
Officials said a 31-year-old man was headed westbound in a Ford F150 and veered into the right lane to avoid hitting the Mustang. The Mustang then sideswiped the Ford truck and hit a Hyundai Accent SUV head-on.
THP said 23-year-old Danielle LaPointe of Hendersonville was the driver of the Hyundai and was killed in the crash. A preliminary crash report also showed two children were in the Hyundai and were injured. They were reportedly in a child restraint at the time.
