Indiana Family Wants Truck Driver to Face Criminal Charges for Deadly I-24 Pile Up

Stream Fox 17 newscasts LIVE starting with TN Mornings at 5 am and News at 9 pm.

MURFREESBORO- A mother who lost her daughter In a fiery car crash on I-24 in Murfreesboro says she feels like the law let her down.

Deja Morris and her boyfriend were killed on their way to Bonnaroo last summer. Relatives tell FOX 17 the truck driver who slammed into eight cars on I-24 will not face criminal charges. Right now the family is trying to appeal the ruling.

Sue Morris was hoping the courts would charge truck driver Stacey Colvin with negligent homicide. She and her family drove down to be at Wednesday's hearing hoping to get the chance to speak in front of the grand jury but that didn't happen.

THP cited Colvin for "failure to exercise due care". Family members believe the truck-driver may only be facing a $50 fine and up to thirty days in jail. I spoke with the family just a few hours ago, and they say they're not giving up this fight. They plan to be back in Murfreesboro in January for Colvin's next hearing.
