Cookeville woman to face vehicular homicide and DUI charges

Posted

A Cookeville woman, who was involved in a head-on collision that resulted in the death of a Cleveland man last year, was booked Tuesday in the Bradley County Jail in preparation for a court appearance on a vehicular homicide charge.

The head-on collision took place on Georgetown Road on Sept. 20, 2018.

The driver, Douglas Long, 74, was killed when his 2000 Chevrolet S-10 was hit by a 2003 Dodge 1500 driven by Kasi Ann Shell, who had allegedly crossed the centerline into the southbound lane, colliding with Long’s vehicle.

There were no other occupants of the vehicles.

Long was transported via Lifeforce to Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga, where he later died. Shell was transported to Erlanger by ground, where she was treated for minor injuries.

In July, Shell, 28, was charged with one count of vehicular homicide/driver intoxication, vehicular homicide and DUI, first offense.

Shell's court date was not available at press time.
