Woman Named BOO Gets Killed In Her Sleep By Pumpkin Hauling Truck

(Nope,  I'm not making this up)

"Neighbors clustered along the edges of McGavock Pike Wednesday, sharing photos and shaking their heads as they peered at the aftermath of a horrific tractor-trailer crash that claimed the life of a woman who was asleep in her bed.

In whispers, they tried to piece together the sequence of events that led an 18-wheeler hauling 40,000 pounds of pumpkins to veer across the two-lane roadway and break through the brick facade of a modest house near the intersection with Kimberly Drive in Donelson. The semi slammed into Carol Boo's bedroom around 3:30 a.m.

Boo, 66, was dead by the time police arrived at the scene.

Her husband, who was sleeping in the adjoining bedroom, wasn't hurt. Neither was her 35-year-old son, who was in another part of the house."
