Metro police said Krista Hindahl of Owensboro, Ky., was killed Sunday morning when another driver attempted to make a left turn across Highway 100 from the exit ramp of Natchez Trace Parkway.
Hindahl, 42, was the passenger on a Harley Davidson motorcycle being driven by her husband, Jeffrey, eastbound on Highway 100 when the driver of a 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser made a prohibited left hand turn in front of the couple.
The Harley crashed into the driver’s side of the car throwing both riders onto the roadway.
Krista Hindahl was run over by the car and died at the scene. Jeffrey Hindahl, 49, was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he is in stable condition. The driver of the PT Cruiser, Shirley Tucker, 58, was transported to St. Thomas Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Tucker, of Hohenwald, Tennessee, told investigators that as she exited Natchez Trace Parkway onto Highway 100, she slowed down to turn left into the Shell station at 8456 Highway 100.
