Tennessee teen trying to change tire alongside interstate hit by car, killed

A 13-year-old boy who was trying to change a flat tire alongside Interstate 24 in Tennessee has died after being struck by a hit-and-run driver.

Tennessee Highway Patrol Sgt. Bill Miller says Clifton Braunwalder of Lascassas died and his mother, Sondra Braunwalder, was injured and taken to a local hospital.

Miller told news outlets that the boy and his mother were beside their car Thursday in Smyrna in the emergency lane with their hazard lights on when another vehicle hit both of them and then drove away from the scene.

Police said a witness followed the other vehicle to a business in Davidson County and called officers. They charged 33-year-old Tina L. Wilson with leaving the scene of a fatal accident.

It wasn't immediately clear whether Wilson had an attorney.
