The Tennessee Highway Patrol is looking for the driver involved in a hit-and-run accident that killed one Huntington native and injured another.
Alice Williamson, 83, of Huntington was killed about 1 a.m. Thursday morning, troopers said. Her daughter, Carol Ann Williamson, 56, of Huntington, was injured in the accident.
Troopers said the accident happened on Interstate 40 in Benton County, Tenn. Troopers believe the Williamsons' vehicle was hit from the rear by a possible tractor-trailer. The impact caused the car to spin off the roadway, hit a culvert and flip several times, troopers said. They said the other vehicle did not stop.
Anyone with information on the wreck is asked to call the Tennessee Highway Patrol Jackson District Office at 731-423-6635.
