Brittany Cole Death – We are extremely devastated to announce the death of Brittany Cole, 30, of Murfreesboro, who died around 2:30 a.m. in a crash on Saturday, July 30, 2022.
Brittany Cole was trapped inside her car. Murfreesboro Fire Rescue Department firefighters used hydraulic equipment to free her. Firefighters and Rutherford County Emergency Services personnel began medical care before Cole was pronounced dead on the scene.
The preliminary investigation shows Ryder was traveling north on Memorial in his 2017 Toyota Tundra and collided into the driver’s side of a 2007 Saturn Ion, driven by Cole. Cole was attempting to make a left turn out of the parking lot of the Mapco Mart. The Tundra then rolled over.
Robert Ryder was taken to the hospital and treated for his injuries. He was arrested after being discharged.
Ryder was booked into Rutherford County Adult Detention Center where he is being held on $350,000 bond. A hearing is set Nov. 28 in General Sessions Court.
