Mother charged in son's assault

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

A Nolensville woman who crashed her Jeep Cherokee in Marshall County and fled was indicted last week on charges alleging assault related to her 10-year-old son's injuries suffered during the crash.

Tracy Lynn Bell, 33, was driving east on Mt. Vernon Road when the Cherokee "ran off the road, striking a fence and a tree," according the report written by Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper David Hill on Feb. 5,

In the car with Bell were her three sons; Tyler, 10; Hayden, 7; and Cameron, 6. Tyler was seriously injured in the wreck in which driver intoxication is alleged to have been a cause leading to the crash.

The seven-count indictment charges Bell with vehicular assault, driving under the influence, two counts of reckless endangerment, leaving the scene of an injury accident, failure to notify police of an accident, and violation of the open container law.

An open 12-ounce can of Bud Light was found in the right rear floorboard, according to Hill's report.

Bell's jail booking form lists her occupation as "lead makeup artist" for RCA in Nashville.
