Prosecutors are still waiting for results of a TBI lab report to determine if any charges will be filed in a crash that has now claimed the life of a second Warren County resident.Melvin Lazzara, 76, died from his injuries six days after his wife, Nancy Lazzara, 75, was killed at the scene of a May 16 crash on Nashville Highway just over the Cannon County line. A joint memorial service will be held for the Lazzaras this Monday.Woodbury resident Gina McCutcheon, 41, was driving a large SUV which reportedly crossed the center line and collided with Lazzaras’ 1994 Jeep Laredo as they were traveling for a doctor’s appointment.Highway patrolman Bruce Pryor, who investigated the wreck, said no charges have been filed against McCutcheon. He said prosecutors are waiting for the results of a drug and alcohol screen on McCutcheon which has been sent to the TBI crime lab for analysis.Pryor says McCutcheon could escape charges entirely if her blood comes back clean.
