Abraham Escalante, of Fountain Run, Kentucky, died at 8:59 a.m. on Monday morning, September 16, at Vanderbilt Hospital, following a violent car crash at the 7000 block of Akersville Road last Wednesday, September 11.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol, Macon County Sheriffs Office and other emergency agencies answered a 3:34 p.m. call on Wednesday afternoon to a one-car crash involving four individuals. An extrication unit was also utilized at the scene.

THP Trooper Johnnie Rodgers stated that Brittany Dicken, of Lafayette, was driving a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am on the Akersville Road when she lost control, ran off the roadway and slammed into a tree on the passenger’s side where 25-year-old Abraham Escalante was riding.

“There were also two passengers in the backseat,” said Trooper Rodgers. “One was 14 and the other was only two years old.”

Air Evac wouldn’t fly because of weather and all four patients were brought by ground ambulance to Macon County General Hospital. Then Escalante and Ms. Dicken were carried to Vanderbilt. She has since been released.

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

Around 4:25 a.m. on Sunday morning, September 8, the Macon County Sheriffs Office responded to an alleged shooting on Green Grove Road after a 911 caller stated he had shot two subjects who were trying to break into his home.

According to Chief Deputy Bryon Satterfield, the Sheriffs Office was called to the scene of an alleged shooting that occurred at the residence of Michael Wayne Knight, on Green Grove Road. “After the Macon County Sheriffs’ deputies got to the scene they did recover a shot gun and a 9 mm pistol,” said Satterfield. “However, after an immediate search of the property no gun shot victims were found, which led to an investigation.”

Satterfield said after extensive interviews and evidence obtained at the scene, Knight did fire shots inside the residence while two small children were present.

“The Department of Children’s Services were immediately called and family members also responded to the scene for the care of the children,” added Satterfield.
