We have more information on the number of vehicle accidents that took place in Rutherford County last year. It looks as if the number of automobile crashes were down significantly in 2020,  but the number of fatal accidents were up…



That was Sgt. Michael Rodgers with the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office.

As heard in previous reports, across the entire State of Tennessee there were 1,148 fatal car accidents in 2019 and 1,230 last year in 2020.
