At 6:50 a.m. Tuesday morning a four-vehicle accident occurred on Hwy 55 inside Warren County.
According to Trooper Ben Cannon’s report a 2007 Jeep Wrangler, driven by 18 year-old Daniel Davidson of Rock Island, was traveling east on Highway 55 when, for unknown reasons, crossed into oncoming traffic and struck a 2012 Ford Focus, driven by 37 year old Veronica Grifaldo of McMinnville. Her passenger, 23 year-old Jennifer Grifaldo of McMinnville, was pronounced dead at the scene. A 2015 Ford Fiesta, driven by a 17 year-old juvenile, struck the Focus on the passenger side. Behind the Fiesta a 1998 Toyota Camry, driven by 69 year-old Donald Carey of McMinnville, was traveling outbound when he swerved to avoid the crashing vehicles and went into a concrete drain tile.
Davidson and Veronica Grifaldo were transported to Vanderbilt Hospital both with life threatening injuries. As of Tuesday afternoon, Grifaldo died from her injuries, bringing the total to two deaths. The 17 year-old juvenile was transported to River Park Hospital for treatment. Carey was not injured.
