He determined that the car accidently rolled into the river and no charges were filed. George Bell, the driver of the 2001 Pontiac Firebird, said he thought he had a flat tire so he stopped to investigate at the top of an access road that leads down to the Greenway.

Willard Mason, of Franklin, a passenger in the car, got out and then Bell followed. After the two left the vehicle, the car began to roll down the hill, striking Mason on the leg and foot.
