Good Samaritan Stops Reckless Driver On I-24 – NewsChannel 5 …

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – A Good Samaritan noticed a driver recklessly swerving across Interstate 24 around 1 a.m. Thursday morning, so he followed the driver while he called dispatch.

“You could tell by the way he was driving that something was going on,” Nashville resident Cory Buckner said. “He ran several cars off the road.”

After following the driver for several miles, Buckner said the black Mustang finally pulled off to side of the road near mile marker 14 in Montgomery County. Buckner stayed back, but also pulled over, waiting for police to respond.

That’s when the reckless driver pulled a u-turn and started driving the wrong way on I-24.

“He actually split two cars, and I thought for sure he had wrecked,” Buckner said.

But the driver kept driving toward Buckner.

“I saw cars behind me, and I knew I wouldn’t feel good about myself if I let this guy get past me,” he said.

So Buckner pulled his Kia

An Oklahoma woman is facing three counts of first degree murder and three counts of first-degree burglary after three masked home invaders were shot and killed by a 19-year old man as they broke into his father’s home.

Three teens dressed in black and wearing masks and gloves were killed by a resident when they broke into a home, Oklahoma authorities said Monday.

The 23-year-old son of the homeowner fired shots from a rifle; officials said. One suspect had a knife, another carried brass knuckles.

The shooter voluntarily spoke with investigators. Neither he nor his father were hurt.

A 21-year-old woman, identified as Elizabeth Rodriguez, turned herself into Broken Arrow
