Manchester Police officer Trey Adcock responded to the scene of an accident involving a car and a pedestrian around 5:30pm Friday afternoon. Adcock found a white Kia vehicle that was damaged including a shattered windshield on Hwy 55 in front of United Regional Medical Center.
Adcock said he talked with the driver of the Kia and she said she knew she struck something but did not know what it was. The female said she pulled over and exited the vehicle and that’s when she saw a person in the roadway. The person that was hit was identified as 70 year-old James Nelson Brewer of Manchester.
When Adcock arrived on the scene an ambulance was already at the location and had Brewer loaded and providing medical treatment. Coffee County EMS transported Brewer to United Regional Medical Center where a short time later he was pronounced deceased from multi-trauma injuries.
Also on Friday afternoon the Tullahoma Police Department confirmed that a 10-year-old boy was killed in a car accident at the intersection of Freeman Street and Highway 55. No other information was provided.
