The wind chill factor had shot well below zero last Wednesday night, January 7, when Trooper Tracy Donoho and emergency agencies were called around 8:40 p.m. to a brutal two vehicle wreck on Highway 52 West that injured two people and killed 18 cows.

According to wreck investigator THP Trooper Donoho, 49-year-old Donald Church Jr., of Lafayette, who was driving a 2006 Chevy Tahoe, was setting at the stop sign at North Lambert Lane where it comes out on Highway 52 West. 48-year-old Kimberly Rhodes, of Lafayette, was a passenger.

“Kenneth Goad, of Pleasant Shade, was hauling cows in a westbound tractor trailer on Highway 52 West,” said Trooper Donoho. “When he came upon North Lambert Lane the Tahoe pulled out in front of the tractor trailer causing the collision. The Tahoe spun around in the road and came to rest partially in the west bound lane and part in the emergency shoulder.”

Trooper Donoho says that the tractor trailer traveled off the shoulder of the roadway and came to rest after it had tipped over on its side. “Eight cows escaped and 18 were killed,” said Trooper Donoho.

Donald Church was carried by medical helicopter to Vanderbilt Hospital, where he remained on Monday in stable condition. Kimberly Rhodes was transported to Sumner Regional Medical Center and later transferred to Vanderbilt Hospital. She has since been released.

Those responding to the scene were the Tennessee Highway Patrol, Macon County Sheriffs Office, Macon County EMS, Lafayette Fire Department, Macon County Rescue Squad, West Macon Rescue Squad, and the Macon County Chronicle.

 

 
Billy McDonald, of RBS, Arrested PDF Print E-mail

Billy McDonald

Billy McDonald, of Red Boiling Springs, has been arrested for two counts of attempted aggravated robbery in Smith County and remains in the Smith County Jail under a $100,000 bond.

According to the narrative by Deputy Rick Mahler, on January 2, him and Sgt. Mark West were dispatched to 283 Dean Hill Road to take a report on an assault. Upon their arrival and speaking to the victims Irina Austin and Nelly Strelnikova they were advised that they had been assaulted by Billy McDonald, of Red Boiling Springs. Irina stated to the officers that she heard a knock at the door and went to see who it was knocking and after looking out she noticed it was McDonald who she is familiar with. Irina stated that Billy told her there was an accident at Bruce’s work and she let him into the house.

Irina stated to the officers that when Billy came into the house he did brandish a handgun and a struggle began. She said that while being assaulted her daughter Nelly Strelnikova came out from her bedroom and started to help her mother. Irina stated that she tried to push Billy out of the house but was unable to. She said that Billy told Nelly to leave or he was going to kill her mother in front of her. Irina then told Nelly to go to the safe and get a gun, when she then headed to the back bedroom. Billy followed her.

She said that Nelly was able to get a gun from the safe and pointed it at Billy but was unable to shoot due to the gun having a double safety. While in the bedroom Billy took Nelly down to the bed and Irina said she jumped on Billy’s back to try and get him off of Nelly. Nelly was then able to break free, go to her car and retrieve her personal handgun. She went back into the residence and pointed the gun at Billy, who was still fighting her mother in the living room. And according to the report she told him she would shoot him if he didn’t stop. Irina stated that he then stopped the assault and she asked him what he wanted and he advised her money. Irina said that she told McDonald to get out of her house.

While the officers were on the scene they did retrieve a air soft pellet gun, a butterfly type knife and a watch. The officer said that they ask the victims to come to the Smith County Sheriffs Office to write their statements. But due to Irina injuries she went to Riverview North ER and was admitted to the hospital and was not able to write a statement at that time. She suffered injuries to her left eye and forehead.

Both victims stated that the incident put them in fear for their safety and thought that the handgun when shown was real.

Billy McDonald, age 44, was caught in Roane County and when his name was entered into the system, officers from that county found out he was wanted in Smith County. The Smith County Sheriffs Office was notified and a deputy went to pick him and bring him back to Smith County Jail, where he remains.

 McDondald is charged with two counts of attempted aggravated robbery. Bond is set at $100,000. A General Sessions Court date is set for Thursday, January 15, in Carthage.

Pictured above is the recovered 2002 Ford box truck reported stolen from the Scottsville Rd. area on January 2, 2015.

The Macon County Sheriff’s Department recovered two stolen vehicles over the weekend and are currently working to apprehend suspects involved.

According to Chief Deputy Bryon Satterfield, the first vehicle, a 2002 Ford box truck valued at over $5,000, was reported stolen from the Scottsville Road area on Friday, January 2, 2015.

The following Sunday, deputies responded to the Twins Lane area in Macon County and discovered the reported vehicle stuck in the mud in a homeowner’s lawn.

After gathering information, the vehicle was identified, the owner was notified and the vehicle was returned. The investigation remains open.

A second stolen vehicle was reported on Sunday, January, 4, 2015, when deputies were called to a residence on Old Highway 52 on the west side of the county. The stolen vehicle, a 1999 Chevy pickup truck valued at over $1,000, was entered into a nationwide database.

“Later that same day deputies received information from the Memphis, Tennessee, Police Department, that the vehicle had been recovered in their city,” Satterfield stated.

Macon County Sheriff’s Department detectives were also notified of the vehicle’s recovery and are currently working a joint investigation with the Memphis Police Department. 

At this time, suspects have been identified in the case and charges are pending.
