ALERT!!! Tennessee REST AREA/Pull Off WARNING-Truckers being robbed

Û

ÏCaution for truckers about Tennessee rest areas from The Mid-West Truckers Association and one of its members…..

The Lockridge Report

We had a driver that was robbed at a rest area/pull off in Tennessee today, on I-24 going from Nashville to Murfreesboro. He also told us there were 3 or 4 other truck drivers robbed at the same place today, all of them in the daylight hours. The robbers are coming up behind the truck driver as he’s climbing into the cab, grabbing him by the throat, covering his eyes, and then emptying his pockets. Our driver was thrown to the ground and by the time he was able to get back up, the robbers had run away. He chased them, and found his wallet and all his personal documents, except for his cash. Luckily he wasn’t hurt and was able to find his CDL, medical card, and all of his other personal items.

    • Wanted to pass this along to get the word out to remind drivers to be very cautious.

    That’s what I think could have happened with my daddy and why the door was standing open on his truck, he was a long haul trucker for 40 years & was robbed & beaten & found dead in parking lot in Amarillo, TX. At the Big Texan steakhouse last month, 3-6-11, we are still looking for answers as to what happened, he was the most WONDERFUL daddy anyone could have ask for & wonderful husband to our mom, they had been married 41 years, we MISS HIM so badly as well as his sisters & brother & so many of his friends & family.

    Just a stupid question. I live in middle tn and have for most of my life. Exactly where is this so called rest area on 24 between nashville and murfreesboro?? After all these years of traveling through here, I have NEVER seen it! Could they have been mistaken of the location?

      Not a stupid question. They did not do a very good job at clarifying it is a “pull off” on the side of the road.
