Early morning crash that killed 28-year-old woman likely involved alcohol, police say

Friday, January 11, 2013 at 12:43pm

Lacy Wilkerson, 28, died early Friday morning after the pickup truck she was driving left the road and struck a stone pillar.

The wreck occurred just after midnight on Highway 100 near Old Hickory Boulevard.

According to police, Wilkerson, of Rice Court in Fairview, was not wearing a seatbelt and officers found evidence of alcohol at the scene of the crash.

The medical examiner, however, will determine whether or not alcohol consumption might have played a role in the wreck.

Her BAC was over 0.08, guaranteed. Probably 0.18+.

Dear dargent7, unless you are a coroner or medical professional who knows the results of her actual blood alcohol test then you shouldn't guarantee anything. Also, perhaps you should refrain from the terse "sad" that you added to make yourself feel better. This is indeed sad for everyone who knew her. You should be ashamed of yourself.

I agree with toERR. A life is lost. I see no need to say alcohol MIGHT be the cause.
Does it help? No...Does it matter right now? No...It just hurts the ones left behind as they go through the hardest days in life. Let the family bury the dead before anyone, even police, news people or speculators like dargent7 say why they THINK it happened. There will be time enough to place blame if needed later. A mother, daughter, sister and friend is dead. Let the family get through this without having to hear the talk and whispers of the nosey gossips and speculators while their pain and grieve are still raw. While their hearts are still breaking.
And even if there was alochol at the scene, it doesn't mean she was drunk. I have lots of stuff in may car that I am not drinking. And if she was drinking, has she not already paid the ulimate price? Has not her family? Let these people mourn and let this young lady rest in peace. Judge not lest you be judged.
