Post Date:05/06/2017 10:00 PM

101799-city-of-franklin-police-department_3x3logo-02Officers were summoned to 1215 Hillsboro Road at 8:45 Friday night after a woman who had stopped to help a dog hit by another driver was then hit by an SUV, herself. Arriving officers found the severely injured 60-year-old Franklin woman on the ground. Paramedics transported Robin Holland to Williamson Medical Center where she was pronounced dead. The dog that Holland had stopped to help also died.

The 71-year-old Thompson’s Station woman who hit Holland was traveling south on Hillsboro Road when she struck her. Traffic Reconstructionists from the Franklin Police Department’s Critical Incident Response team are investigating. No charges have been filed. The hearts of our officers are deeply saddened by the Holland family’s tragic loss.
