For immediate release

Jackson, TN – On April 30, 2024, U.S. Marshals captured a West Tennessee man in North Mississippi who was wanted for a deadly hit and run in Jackson, Tennessee.

On April 24, around 3:40 p.m., the Jackson Police Department (JPD) responded to a report of a traffic accident in the 2000 block of North Parkway. Jimmy Breedlove, 79, of Madison County, Tennessee, was found lying unresponsive in the roadway. He was airlifted to a Memphis hospital and later pronounced dead from his injuries.

JPD Officers observed a crashed and abandoned Hyundai Elantra in the immediate area. Officers on the scene determined that Breedlove had been operating a Mahindra open cab farm tractor east on North Parkway when he was struck from behind by the Elantra. The driver of the Elantra then fled the scene.
