A Rutherford County Sheriff's deputy was involved in a crash on State Route 840, on the ramp at Veterans Parkway. The accident happened around 9pm Thursday night. Reports indicate the officer was attempting to stop two cars drag racing. One of the car's involved stopped, but another exited 840 on the eastbound ramp and the deputy apparently pursued. The deputy was trapped, at least initially, but was able to get free. No word on injuries. The Tennessee Highway Patrol, Murfreesboro Fire and Rescue, Murfreesboro Police and Emergency Medical Services were all on the scene of the crash.
Blue Raider Sports Properties, a division of Learfield Sports, is happy to announce that a three-year extension has been added to the broadcast agreement with NewsRadio WGNS Radio. The affiliation between Blue Raider Athletics and WGNS dates back to 1947 and, for the biggest part of those 68 years, has been a broadcast outlet for Middle Tennessee. The new agreement will mean that Blue Raider Network programming will be heard on NewsRadio WGNS through at least 2018.
