Crash alert: Sentencing delayed for driver in crash that killed police officer

by Ponce Law | August 28th, 2020

NASHVILLE, TN – Sentencing has been delayed for a young woman who pleaded guilty in a crash that killed a Nashville police officer, WSMV reported.

This is an update to a previous story.

Judge Steve Dozier issued the delay Thursday in the sentencing of 18-year-old Jayona Brown, in order to review additional proof presented in the case.

Brown entered a guilty plea last month to four charges—including vehicular homicide—in connection with the July 4, 2019 crash that resulted in the death of Officer John Anderson. Authorities said she was fleeing a possible traffic stop when she slammed into Anderson’s patrol car at the intersection of Interstate Drive and Woodland Street. Anderson’s vehicle crashed into a light pole and then caught fire.

At the sentencing hearing Thursday, Anderson’s family gave victim impact statements.  Brown took the stand to say she took full responsibility for her actions and asked the family for forgiveness.

Losing a loved one is always difficult — regardless of the circumstances. But when their death is caused by someone else’s negligence, it can be even more devastating.

Crash alert: I-24 east shut down for hours after series of incidents

by Ponce Law | August 24th, 2020

NASHVILLE, TN – A series of incidents that began with a crash prompted authorities to shut down a stretch of Interstate 24 in Nashville for hours early Sunday, according to WKRN.

The initial crash involved three vehicles and occurred just after midnight on I-24 eastbound between Harding Place and Haywood Lane. It left one person with minor injuries.

The vehicle of an officer responding to the scene was rear-ended, and the officer was hospitalized with minor injuries. The driver who struck the vehicle was arrested for driving under the influence.
