A driver who led police on a pursuit in Franklin early Thursday morning crashed her vehicle and died, according to the Franklin Police Department.
The woman’s white pickup matched the description of a vehicle that was seen leaving Walmart on East Second Street after someone had been shoplifting at about 1:15 a.m., The Journal-News reported.
Authorities say 10 minutes after they told about the theft, an officer spotted the white pickup headed south on Anderson Street. The officer turned the cruiser’s lights on and attempted to pull the driver over. The driver sped away, went left of center and off of the roadway and struck a tree in the 6900 block of Shaker Road.
