The woman who left the scene of a fatal hit-and-run in Rutherford County yesterday is out of jail.

Tina L. Wilson, 33, of Murfreesboro, was arrested for leaving the scene of an accident with bodily injury on Thursday on I-24 in Smyrna. She was released from jail on $5,000 bond at 12:30 a.m. Friday, according to the jail.

According to police, Wilson, who had a passenger with her in the car, was on her way to Addiction Medicine Clinic (AMC), a drug counseling center in south Nashville.

The victim, 13-year-old Clifton Braunwalder, son of Norbert and Sondra, of Lascassas, died after being hit by the car driven by Wilson alongside the interstate while changing a tire with his mom and sister there, say police.

There is a special mass Friday morning scheduled for Braunwalder of Lascassas at Saint Rose Lima Parish in Murfreesboro at 8:15 a.m.

The family sent FOX 17 pictures of Clifton, who is homeschooled. His sister says he was a sweet young man who was strong in his faith and had a smile and a joke for everyone. She says he was involved in sports, Boy Scouts, and serving the community. He will be greatly missed, she finished.
