Crash alert: Woman charged in deadly Nashville crash pleads not guilty

by Ponce Law | September 25th, 2020

NASHVILLE, TN – A woman has pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from a fatal crash in Nashville this past June, WSMV reports.

29-year-old Brittnie Woodruff appeared in court Wednesday after being indicted last week by a Davidson County grand jury.

Authorities say she stole a truck from a work site and crashed into a pickup truck parked on Tennessee Avenue near 51st Avenue North. The driver of the pickup, 61-year-old Christopher Slaughter, was standing outside the vehicle. He was pulled under the truck and was killed. Woodruff allegedly left the scene and hit another vehicle before nearby citizens were able to stop her.

Woodruff is under indictment on several charges, including vehicular homicide-intoxication and leaving the scene of a fatal accident.
