Police Lights Night

A 78-year-old woman was driving a pickup truck Friday when she crashed into a utility pole.

Metro police said Shirley Waller later died of her injuries Sunday following the Blackman Road crash.

It happened around 10:30 a.m. Friday when her 1991 Nissan pickup truck left the roadway and collided with the pole.

Waller was taken to a nearby hospital with what was believed to be minor injuries, but her condition worsened until her death Sunday.

Further details were not immediately released.
