Out for a walk at 1:30pm -> Deadly hit and run. Learn more.

All to often, in Nashville & the surrounding area, there is literally no infrastructure for walkers.   

The photo below is so familiar for many of our roadways.  This is NOT SAFE & frankly not acceptable.  If you haven't let your  councilpersons know that safe sidewalks are a top priority - this is the time to do it.  

The deadly incident below occurred, at 1:30pm, when a husband and wife were out for a walk.  

This is a photo of the location.


Our beautiful, sweet, caring and loving friend Dineen Cottrell is in the fight of her life right now! She was involved in a tragic accident that has left her in critical condition. Dineen lost her loving husband Bobby in the accident and now the family will face not only medical expenses but also funeral expenses for Bobby. Her beautiful daughter Summer has lost her amazing step-dad and is now focused on helping Dineen heal one day at a time. Let's all come together and help these amazing people! Dineen has such a giving heart! It is now our turn to open our hearts to her! Everyone keep praying hard!!!
