A man convicted of fatally striking another with a vehicle during a 2015 4th of July celebration in Oak Ridge will get a new trial. Lee Cromwell was found guilty of reckless vehicular homicide in the death of James Robinson and eight counts of reckless aggravated assault. An appeals court judge said this week that the jury in the 2017 trial was not given the proper definition of reckless aggravated assault under Tennessee law. The court overturned those eight counts and ordered a new trial for Cromwell on just those eight counts. The reckless vehicular homicide conviction will stand.
