A Jamestown woman died Tuesday following a traffic accident on Memory Garden Road in Fentress County. The THP reports that 61 year Norma H. Dodson was killed after her 2014 Ford Focus was stuck head-on by a 1999 Dodge Durango driven by 44 year old Johnnie M. Robbins of Jamestown. According to the authorities, Robbins lost control in a curve. Neither driver was wearing a seat belt and in the reporting officer’s opinion safety restraints would have made a difference. Citations are pending. The THP reports that so far this year there have been 4 traffic related fatalities in Fentress County, 9 in Cumberland County and 65 people have died on roadways in the Cookeville THP district.
