Daughter of Hank William's Jr. dies in Tennessee highway accident

PARIS, Tenn. (AP) — Police in Tennessee say the 27-year-old daughter of country singer Hank Williams Jr. has been killed in a highway accident.

Tennessee Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Brad Wilbanks says Katherine Williams-Dunning of Springville was the driver of a SUV that was towing a boat when it crossed the median and rolled over Saturday night.

The accident happened on U.S. Route 79 northeast of Paris.

Her husband, 29-year-old Tyler J. Dunning, was a passenger in the vehicle. News outlets report he was airlifted to a Nashville hospital. His condition was not immediately released.

Wilbanks says the accident remains under investigation.
