life flight 3A Tullahoma woman was flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center Tuesday night after being struck by a pickup truck.
Cassie Ferguson of Songbird Lane was injured when she was struck by a Toyota 4-Runner while at Pleasant Grove Boat Dock.
According to a report by Franklin County Sheriff’s Deputy Kalyn Machuta, Ferguson, her husband David Ferguson and her 11-year-old son were at the boat dock when the couple began to argue.

According to her son, she then drove home to Songbird Lane. When she arrived home, she opened the door to her pickup truck and fell to the ground and began throwing up and crying. The boy then called 911.
When she arrived David was at the house but he left, according to the deputy’s report, “because he was afraid he was going to jail.”
The North Franklin County Fire Department was the first responder to the residence and began to treat the woman until ambulance personnel arrived. Cassie was transported to the North Franklin County Fire Department and placed in a LifeFlight helicopter and flown to the Nashville medical facility.
While Deputy Machuta was on the scene, David called Cassie’s cellphone and the deputy answered it and talked to him. She asked him where he was. He told her that he was going to get his son in Shelbyville. At that point Franklin County authorities notified law enforcement officers in Bedford County. David Ferguson was found and arrested at a shopping center in Shelbyville.
David Ferguson was booked into the Franklin County Jail on charges of aggravated assault and domestic violence. He is being held on a bond of $200,000 and is to appear in Franklin County General Sessions Court Aug. 20.
