Tennessee Emergency Vehicle Safety - Vanessa K. Free Requirements Unit 1 - FOR TENNESSEE EMERGENCY RESPONDERS ONLY
On November 17, 2002, Vanessa Free was killed in an automobile accident in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Vanessa and four other UTC freshmen were about one block off campus, when they stopped for a red light. When their light turned green, they started through the intersection, but had to immediately brake because a police car ran his red light, with blue lights only. Still having the green light, the girls started through the intersection again. Within seconds, a second police car also with blue lights only, ran the red light. This police car hit the girl’s car broadside on the passenger side, sending their car spinning 275 feet. The traffic reconstruction specialist said that the police officer was going 65-70 miles per hour in a 35 miles-per-hour zone. Vanessa was riding in the front passenger seat and was killed instantly while the other girls received serious injuries. The police officer, who received minor injuries, had been on his way to a call concerning a fight.
