After listening to testimony last week jurors were unable to determine a verdict in a case involving the traffic-related death of a Leoma man.
Members of a Lawrence County Grand Jury issued an indictment in March, charging Michelle Glass Lyles, 28, of Loretto, with vehicular homicide in the death of Glynn Reavis Sandlin, age 77.
The crash occurred October 28, 2009 on U.S. Highway 43 South. The Tennessee Highway Patrol reported that Sandlin was southbound in the far right lane on a farm tractor, taking it for servicing.
Lyles, who was southbound in a car reportedly struck the right rear tire of the tractor, resulting in a crash.
Officials reported that Sandlin sustained numerous broken bones as well as other serious injuries. He was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. Sandlin succumbed to his injuries on Sunday, November 8, 2009.
After conducting deliberations, the panel tasked with hearing the case returned to the courtroom to announce they were unable to come to a consensus. Prosecutors will now confer with family members, then determine whether a second trial will be held.
