That would be vehicular homicide. Somebody must have eye witnessed it to give description maybe even plate number etc??? Who was hit and killed? I'm so sorry to hear this... ask me why I hate going into town anymore, and only do so when absolutely necessary... too risky! SO WEIRD and so scary for such small towns to have so many of these fatal accidents all the time like it does UGH.

if they were hit, it was probably a prostitute for being out so late so serves her right anyways. How did you know of this incident? were you her hooker partner?

How do you know it was a car that hit her, and ran off? I'm trying to imagine how this went down... did you hear this on scanner?... or, were you there?... you said at first you believed it was a girl that was hit, then you come across that you 'know' it was a girl. No description, no age, no description of the car, no time that this happened etc. Just sort of 'off the wall'....

Anyone reading this that so happens to have a daughter that didn't come home last night, gets to now freak the hell out with this 'alert' thing you put on here... not everybody walks around with personal ID on them, etc, so if this happened then YOU need to take responsibility for putting this on here with butchered spelling and about ZERO info to help anyone that this girl may be family/friend of!

What's up with this? Anybody have better or more detailed info? Accuracy, and better writing skills would be nice ty GEEZ!

Ok, TY!

Here's the link then:

http://www.1450wlaf.com/

Story:

"A Middlesboro woman was killed Tuesday night at Jacksboro. Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper Warren Crumpley tells WLAF that 39-year old Terenia Grubbs was walking across the four-lane in front of Jacksboro Middle School when she was hit. Crumpley explains that Grubbs walked in front of the eastbound vehicle just after 11:15 p.m. in an area where the posted speed limit is 45 miles per hour. Dispatchers with 9-1-1 say Lifestar was called but was then waved off. It's believed Grubbs was struck by a small, white pick-up truck that left the scene. The truck has front end damage.(UPDATED WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2012, 6:00 AM)"

Geez. Don't know why anyone -'believer'- would put such an alarming 'newsflash' on here and not have backed it up with something like this link/story with the details of it for whoever might would have needed to know or was worried about a female family member missing and needed answers and was on here trying to find something out, before LE could have gotten to them to let them know or something... just posting what you did was EGREGIOUSLY IGNORANT. Egregious: LOOK IT UP.

Just damn.

Prayers for the family, and friends, of this 39 yr old WOMAN... no where near GIRL,'believer'/ COMPLETE MORON. Don't have kids plz n ty!

Anyone else: Be on the lookout for a small white pick-up truck with front end damage. For whatever reason this woman walked out into traffic, the driver did indeed kill her and drive off, and needs to be brought to justice regardless of why she was out in the middle of the road to begin with. She was still someones daughter, possibly mother, aunt, bff, sister, wife...etc.

First I wouldn't have drove off. With that said there are no lights in that area why was she walking across the four lane at night! Then stepped out in front of a truck! Wlaf is reporting.

Ok, really now. Don't judge the people involved. Accidents are called accidents for a reason. Sh!t happens. Could happen to any one of us with the increasing number of homeless people; And who are any of us to say how we would react if it did happen to us? I believe we should have positive thoughts and prayer that first off, hopefully it was not on purpose, and that no drugs or alcohol were involved, and that hopefully the police are good enough to figure this out and not throw the driver to the wolves if it is ruled she didn't know what she hit. May have thought it was a pot hole, as good as our road systems are. I'm gonna pray for all involved, including investigators.

Bull! Hitting someone and leaving them for dead is exactly something to be judged and condemned. A person is dead, and none of your bs about hopefully this and hopefully that can bring them back to life. Potholes? Are you serious? What permissive and enabling crap. It is nonsense like this which makes it hard to live around here. You find a hundred excuses for someone who callously drove off after snuffing out a life but what about justice for the deceased???
Seriously
