On Tuesday (06/23/2015), an officer was assisting a stranded motorist on the shoulder of I 65 South near Peytonsville Road in Williamson County when a Murfreesboro woman allegedly failed to move over. The officer was in a marked car, with blue lights flashing. The police released a video of the incident showing the officer protecting the right lane where a tow truck driver had just finished loading the stranded motorist's car onto his flatbed. The video shows the tow truck driver getting back into the truck moments before 52-year-old Elizabeth Dorgan, of Murfreesboro, slams into the police car protecting him.
Dorgan was cited by the Williamson County Sheriff's Office for Disobeying the Move Over Law and not having Proof of Insurance. The police car she hit is out of commission, pending significant bodywork; the officer is at home recovering.
