Overton County Woman Killed In I-40 Wreck

An Overton County woman was killed over the weekend in a traffic crash on I-40, which caused the interstate to be shut down for several hours. Officials with the Cookeville district of the Tennessee Highway Patrol identified the victim as 64-year-old Donna Brennan of Livingston. Troopers say Brennan lost control of her 1997 Mercedes C23 and crossed the median. They say her vehicle hit a tractor trailer driven by Albert Galvin head on. That's when Galvin's truck slammed into another tractor trailer causing it to immediately burst into flames. Troopers are still investigating but they say everyone involved was wearing their seatbelt. They don't suspect drugs or alcohol played a factor.
