Seven people were treated at the hospital following Saturday’s fatal wreck on U.S. Highway 72.

The Corinth Police Department released more details on the crash Monday afternoon.

Theresa Lahey, 44, of Walnut, died in the 3:49 p.m. crash, and seven others among the three vehicles were taken to Magnolia Regional Health Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

Capt. Chuck Hinds said Lahey was a passenger in the back seat of a 1999 Chevrolet Impala driven by her father, Gary Lahey, 68, of Walnut. Also passengers in the vehicle were Crystal Ozbirn Lahey, 43, of Walnut, and Michael Anderson, 23, of Corinth.

Hinds said the westbound Impala was sitting stationary on the highway waiting to turn left onto Salem Road when it was struck in the rear by a westbound 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer driven by Beverly Bartlett, 51, of East Ridge, Tenn. Tiffany Bartlett, 24, of East Ridge, Tenn., was a passenger in the vehicle.

The Impala was knocked into the side of an eastbound 2006 Jeep Sport driven by Shawna Butler, 27, of Corinth. Caden Butler, 21, of Corinth, was a passenger in the Jeep, which was about to turn right onto Salem Road.

Police were at the scene until 5:11 p.m.

Hinds said the investigation is ongoing.
