The trooper pursued at speeds of more than 120 mph. The trooper knocked the vehicle off the road with a PIT maneuver, and the vehicle traveled into the median, overturned, and then struck a tree, entrapping all three people inside. Passengers Phillip Jackson, 32, and Tiffany T. Bingham, 42, were killed in the crash. Social media reports said the alleged driver, Quentin Alonzo or Hix, 30, was also killed, but news reports said he was taken to Erlanger, a hospital in Chattanooga.
