2 Killed In Williamson County Crash

CREATED Feb 26, 2014

WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Tenn. – Two people were killed Monday in a crash in Williamson County.

A report from the Tennessee Highway Patrol said Joe E. Martin died in the crash around 4 p.m. on U.S. Highway 31 in Franklin. He was not wearing his seatbelt, but investigators said that would not have made a difference. 

The THP said 88-year-old Alice Fisher was driving a 2002 Chevrolet Impala in the southbound lanes when she crossed over the dividing line and struck Martin's 1991 Ford Ranger. The pickup truck landed in a ditch, while the Impala was spun around.

Investigators said Fisher, of Franklin, was critically injured and died Tuesday night at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. She also had a dog in her vehicle. 

A Deputy with the Williamson County Sheriff's Office was involved in a collision while responding to the fatal crash but officials said no one was hurt.
