October 21, 2013


Dolly Parton received minor injuries late this morning when the SUV in which she was riding was struck by a car at the intersection of Vaulx Lane and Kirkwood Avenue.
Parton was the front seat passenger in a Nissan Xterra being driven by Judy Ogle, 68, of Nashville.  They were traveling eastbound on Kirkwood Avenue when a Mitsubishi Diamante being driven by Diane Lish, 64, of Old Hickory, pulled into the intersection from Vaulx Lane.  The two vehicles collided at 11:41 a.m.  The investigation shows that Lish failed to yield.
Ogle and Parton were transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment.  Lish was taken to Centennial Medical Center.  None of the injuries appeared to be serious.
