July 2, 2013

A 15-year-old Greenwood boy died Monday after the mo-ped he was driving crashed into a car in Franklin. Jacob Derrickson died of blunt-force trauma to the head and neck after he ran into a Honda Civic near a Pizza Hut on U.S. 31. Police say the car’s driver, Elaine Maurer, 25, did not see Derrickson and made a left-hand turn directly in front of him as he drove south on U.S. 31. No charges were filed.
