Case against driver in fatal Germantown crash goes before judge

Stephanie Ferguson

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Metro Police say Stephanie Ferguson, the suspected pickup truck driver involved in last week’s accident that killed two people, shouldn’t have been behind the wheel to begin with.

Ferguson was driving on a revoked license at the time of the crash last Thursday at Jefferson Street and Third Avenue North in Germantown.

She was arrested for violating the terms of her probation.

Monday morning, Ferguson’s case went before a Nashville judge. Ferguson did not appear in court.

Judge Bill Higgins sentenced Ferguson, 29, for violating probation on three separate offenses.

He sentenced her to serve six months on a theft conviction from last May, 11 months and 29 days for a March 2014 DUI conviction, and another 11 months and 29 days for a 2009 conviction
for assaulting a police officer.

Ferguson has not been charged in connection with the double fatal car crash. Both Willie Nichols, 64, and 66-year-old Aaron Hall were killed. See photos of the scene here.

Investigators are consulting with the district attorney’s office to determine what charges Ferguson could face.

No future court date has been set.
