Shelia McGruder was driving her Ford Explorer southbound on Austin Peay Highway near Joslyn Drive at 4:15 a.m. on August 31, 2018 when another vehicle struck her from behind and caused her SUV to flip, trapping her inside. The second vehicle — described as a dark gray or silver Honda Civic — continued on its way toward Jackson Avenue and Wales Road.
The hit-and-run victim was taken to the hospital but later died of her injuries. The suspect’s car probably sustained some damage in the front end from the crash. Anyone with information that can help bring the driver to justice is asked to contact CrimeStoppers, (901) 528-CASH (2274).
