Calls came in to 911 operators alerting them of a green Chevrolet Cavalier which had hit Murphy. One of the eye witnesses even provided authorities with the license plate number of Garland’s car which he had memorized. The cops used this information to track down Garland and apprehend him. Murphy succumbed to his injuries at University of Tennessee Medical Center.

8-year old killed in utility task vehicle crash
According to accident reports compiled by the Hardin County Fire Department, an 8-year old girl was been killed when a utility task vehicle she was riding in flipped earlier this week. The girl was with her 7-year old cousin when the vehicle toppled, as per a WBBJ report.
The girl has been identified as Anna Morris. Investigators attribute the sudden flip to a hole that Anna had driven into. Accident attorneys said seatbelts and helmets might have saved her life but according to eyewitnesses neither child wore any safety equipment.

The 7-year old surviving cousin was transported by air ambulance to Le Bonhuer Children’s Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. He has since been discharged and is recovering at his home.
