JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) — A man driving a pickup truck in Madison County ran into three horseback riders, killing a 12-year-old girl before fleeing the scene on foot. The driver of a 1984 Chevrolet pickup first struck a horse ridden by 21-year-old Matthew Webb and 12-year-old Amber Kendrick, according to an account given by the sheriff's office to The Jackson Sun. The truck then struck a second horse, ridden by 20-year-old John Thomas Gobbell. Kendrick and both the horses were killed, and the two men suffered minor injuries.
