The Tennessee Highway Patrol continues to investigate a wreck that claimed the life of a Giles County woman June 3.

Jessica Darnell, 31, of Pulaski was pronounced dead at the scene of the one-vehicle wreck which reportedly occurred on Highway 64 West at 8:51 p.m. June 3.

Darnell was the passenger in a 2000 Porsche 911 driven by 40-year-old Josh Duncan of Pulaski who was critically injured.

The preliminary THP report on the accident indicates that the vehicle driven by Duncan was traveling east on U.S. Highway 64 West when it left the right side of the roadway, struck an embankment, rolled and came to its final rest upside down 40 yards off the roadway near the intersection of Agnew Road.

Giles EMS paramedics pronounced Darnell dead at the scene and prepared Duncan for transport by AirEvac to Huntsville (Ala.) Hospital.

The Giles County Sheriff’s Department and Giles County Fire and Rescue aided at the scene.

The report indicates that both occupants were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.
