A woman was killed in a car accident when she fell off the trunk of a moving car. The district attorney is getting help from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation to help figure out what caused the accident.

The woman struck her head on the road, Tuesday, while driving on the trunk. McMinn County investigators were working the accident. The District Attorney General asked the TBI to help assist the investigation.

The woman was transported by helicopter to University of Tennessee Medical Center. A friend said he and Smith were hitched to a ride with a driver in a black Honda, but the woman was riding on the trunk. When she fell, the driver sped off and is still unidentified.
