Child Killed In Macon County Crash
The Highway Patrol confirms a 4-month-old baby girl has died as a result of injuries she suffered Monday night in a head-on collision in Macon County.
It happened just before 6 p.m. Monday night on Highland Road/US 64, southeast of Franklin.
Troopers say the driver of a truck, 58-year-old Kenneth Pearce, crossed the center lane and struck a car head on. The driver of that vehicle, 32-year-old Angelina Feria-Cruz , was traveling with her 4-month-old daughter in the back seat. All three were taken to the hospital, where the baby later died.
Troopers say charges are pending in the accident. Drugs, alcohol, texting or speed don't seem to be a factor, but troopers say they still have a lot of investigating to do before than can say for sure.
The driver of the truck is in fair condition Tuesday night. The baby's mother is out of the hospital.
