The Elena Zamora Memorial Act will be enacted Thursday in a ceremonial bill signing by Governor Bill Haslam.
The act, named after high school student Elena Zamora, will increase the penalty for failure to yield the right of way resulting in death.
It will become a Class A misdemeanor with a penalty of a $2,500 fine and a possible 11 months and 29 days in jail.
It also increases the penalties for causing serious injury.
The Elena Zamora Memorial Act came about after she was hit and killed by a semi in a busy intersection of downtown Nashville in December 2013.
She had the walk signal as she crossed the street but was hit by the truck as it turned right.
The semi driver was ultimately charged with failure to yield and paid a $500 fine. He did not lose his license.
McMinnville resident Chris Hennessee was recently selected to carry the iconic Olympic Flame ahead of the 2016 Olympic Games to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The 2016 Olympic Torch Relay will travel through more than 300 Brazilian cities over three months en route to Rio, with Hennessee serving as a torchbearer in July.
Hennessee is a sixteen-year employee at Bridgestone in Warren County. Bridgestone received a small number of torchbearer spots in the relay.
The company decided to offer these opportunities to employees, and opened up nominations from within the company, basing the selections on mentorship and coaching.
Bridgestone employees, or teammates, were asked to nominate a mentor or colleague who helped build their performance at Bridgestone, or who helped them shape their career, and they nominated Hennessee.
