NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Murfreesboro man has been killed when his car flipped as he tried to elude a state trooper chasing him.
Tennessee Highway Patrol spokesman Mike Browning told The Tennessean that 51-year-old Thomas William Anderson ran off Interstate 24 on Nashville's northwest side and overturned Monday.
Browning said trooper Shawn Boyd began pursuing Anderson 40 miles south of the crash site when Anderson's car was clocked at 98 miles per hour in Rutherford County.
Browning said Anderson's car ran into the back of another vehicle near downtown Nashville, but kept going.
Anderson was thrown from his vehicle as it overturned later.
