Woman killed in hit-and-run crash while walking with daughter in Antioch


ANTIOCH, Tenn. (WKRN) — A 38-year-old woman was killed in a hit-and-run crash while walking with her daughter in Antioch early Monday morning.

The crash happened on Apache Trail near the intersection of Packard Drive and the entry of an apartment complex around 5:20 a.m.

Metro police reported Kimberly Cox and her 19-year-old daughter were walking on the side of the roadway facing toward traffic.

Cox and her daughter were walking to the nearby Shell station, where they both worked, from their apartment complex, according to Metro police.

Metro police reported Cox was hit by an eastbound sedan, possibly a Nissan, and should have damage to its front passenger side, including a missing headlight and fog light.

Both women were walking on the side of the roadway facing traffic, as is required by Metro ordinance, since there is no sidewalk, according to Metro police.

The daughter was not injured in the crash.
