Teenager Facing Vehicular Homicide Charges

A Putnam County teenager, involved in a fatal wreck last June, has now been charged with vehicular homicide. 17-year-old Cody Harville was in Juvenile Court on Monday for a hearing in which his bond was set at $25,000 and he was ordered to remain under house arrest.
Authorities say 16-year-old Ethan Adam Polston of Cookeville died when the car in which he was a passenger crashed on Old Baxter Road last year. The THP says the wreck occurred about three o'clock in the morning when the 2008 Honda Civic that Harville was driving went off the road on the right side, struck a tree and then travelled back across the road and hit an embankment on the left side. Polston is the son of Algood police officer Scott Polston.
