Speeding is a primary contributing factor in Monday (11/16/20) morning’s four-vehicle crash on Murfreesboro Pike near Mt. View Road that claimed the life of one driver.
The deceased, 25-year old Chevalier Walden of LaVergne, was driving his 2015 Nissan Altima outbound on Murfreesboro Pike at a high rate of speed when he crested a hill and lost control in a curve. The Altima traveled into oncoming traffic and struck a Chevrolet Impala and a Honda Accord before it was hit on the passenger side by a Toyota Tacoma pickup truck. Walden, who was not wearing a seatbelt, died shortly after arriving at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. The occupants of the three other vehicles were transported to area hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.
There were no signs of alcohol or drug use by anyone involved.
