A Killen, Ala., man was killed Tuesday night in a one-car traffic accident on Union Hill Road about a mile-and-a-half north of Ardmore when his car went out of control and left the road as he attempted to evade a pursuing police officer.
Jerry Franklin Cottrell, 25, was the victim of the third fatal accident in Giles County this year. Doyce Howard of Anderson, Ala., a passenger in the car, was taken to an Athens, Ala., hospital for treatment of injuries thought to be minor.
Sgt. Homer Smith of the Tennessee Highway Patrol, who investigated, said Cottrell was observed running a red traffic light in Ardmore; Police Chief Elifus Sanders gave chase and Cottrell turned right on the Union Hill Road just north of the railroad underpass in Ardmore.
Sanders was quoted as saying that Cottrell was traveling at high speed and, when they approached Old Smith Hollow Road, he (Sanders) slowed down, realizing that the pavement ended just over the rise, and was out of sight when the accident occurred.
When the Cottrell car hit the end of the pavement it reportedly sailed through the air for approximately 50 yds., struck the ground and traveled another 90 yards or more before stopping.
The accident occurred at 8 p. m.

A 33-year-old volunteer fireman, asleep during a fire at his own home at Lewisburg Sunday, was burned to death.
Two bedrooms of the five room home were destroyed about 2:30 a.m. Relatives said Lionell (Buddy) Drake, heavy sleeper, was awakened by his wife but apparently was not awake enough to follow her out of their flaming bedroom.
Drake was a printer for the Marshall Gazette, a Lewisburg newspaper. His wife, Mrs. Dorothy Doss Drake, led her two children out of the house from their adjoining bedroom in the front of the house.
Mrs. Drake suffered first and second degree burns on her arms, hips and legs. The children were not injured.
Paul McKissack, who is married to Drake's sister, said Mrs. Drake told him she thought her husband followed her and the children out of the house.

McKissick said, "Lionell was a very heavy sleeper. Dorothy told me she woke him up and told him the house was on fire. He said something and she left the room, thinking he was following her. He might have gone back to sleep."
The body was found on the floor about three feet from the bed. Mrs. Drake took the children to the home of a neighbor, Willis Fitzpatrick, who called the fire department.
Lewisburg firemen said the blaze was confined to the bedrooms and that the blaze apparently was caused by faulty wiring in a water heater in a closet just outside Mr. and Mrs. Drake's bedroom.
