NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The suspected driver involved in a deadly four-car accident in Germantown Thursday was booked into the Metro jail following her release from the hospital.
Stephanie Ferguson, 29, was booked just after 1:30 p.m. Friday for violating the terms of her probation from a March 2014 DUI conviction. She is being held on a $100,000 bond.
Ferguson is the suspected pickup driver of a fatal crash that happened on Third Avenue and Jefferson Street on Thursday.
Willie Nichols, 64, and 66-year-old Aaron Hall were both killed in the accident.

Police said they were sitting stationary behind two other cars around 11:20 a.m. when they were struck from behind.
“Traffic has just begun to move when a red pickup truck coming off the bridge smashed into the rear of a Cadillac, which then caused a chain reaction crash with two other vehicles,” police spokesman Don Aaron said.
Six people, including suspected driver Ferguson and 28-year-old Ashley Morrison, who was in the pickup truck with Ferguson, were all injured in the crash.
Earlier Thursday, Ferguson was convicted of DUI from a Dec. 2013 crash where she drove into a house on Delaware Avenue.
On her Facebook page she wrote, “To everyone that is doubting me, I had a seizure and I am so sorry for the lives taken. Prayers for the people involved and the family hurt.”
Records show Ferguson has a lengthy criminal record including two DUIs, several charges of driving without a license or a revoked license, theft, assault and several drug possession charges.
She is scheduled to be back in court Monday.
