From Metro Police
A 42-year-old LaVergne man was killed Saturday after a two-vehicle collision on Old Hickory Boulevard near Owen Drive. Efforts continue to notify his next of kin.
The preliminary investigation shows that the man was driving his 1990 Ford F-15 southbound on Old Hickory Boulevard when he entered a curve in the roadway, crossed over the double yellow lines, and crashed head-on into a northbound Nissan Rogue. He was transported to Vanderbilt Medical Center where he died. The driver of the Rogue, Anthony Birge, 51, sustained non-life threatening injuries. Both men were wearing seatbelts.
There was evidence of alcohol involvement in the Ford F-150. Toxicology testing will be conducted to determine whether impairment played a role in this fatal crash.
