Award doubled by family in hopes of new information about rock thrown from I-24

Written by: Samantha Tilman


The family of Joe Shelton, who was killed as he drove to Nissan for work on I-24 has doubled the award to $10,000 due to the lack of leads. Shelton died when a piece of concrete was thrown from the Shelby Avenue Bridge overpass and went through his windshield.


Metro Nashville Police Department Sgt. Brian Brown has said that here is video footage of someone walking away from the bridge a minute after the crash happened.


It has been determined by the Tennessee Department of Transportation bridge inspectors that the rock was not from the bridge but a piece of curb.

“We are still seeking the public’s assistance,” Brown states. The award for any information leading to the conviction of a suspect is now worth $10,000.



Those with information can call Nashville Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463
