BELLEVUE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A 28-year-old man has been indicted by a Davidson County grand jury after police say he crashed his car into a Bellevue condo and killed a woman.

It happened during the early morning hours of Aug. 1.

According to police, Michael Harris was headed south on Sawyer Brown Road when he lost control, hit a pole, crossed several yards and George Patton Road before driving into Bobbie Ann Lafollette’s home.

The 71-year-old woman, who was asleep on the couch at the time, was killed.

Harris’ attorney, Worrick Robinson, previously told News 2 his client “grieves for the family.”

“I think the most difficult part of this for him is the loss of life here and his being involved in that,” Robinson said. “I know he grieves for the family; I grieve for the family. It’s just another tragedy that’s fallen on our city. It’s just going to take some time to unwind this thing and see what’s going on.”

Harris is charged with vehicular homicide.

A memorial was created by friends and families outside of Lafollette’s home in the days following the accident.
