The man was killed when he crashed at around 1:45 Sunday morning in the 1100 block of Murfreesboro Pike. Metro Police confirmed it was a single-vehicle accident.

Police reported the preliminary investigation shows that he was driving a Nissan Xterra at a high rate of speed when he lost control and went off the roadway. The SUV struck a utility pole and tree before landing on its passenger side in the parking lot of 1128 Murfreesboro Pike. Several bystanders heard the crash and then extricated him from the vehicle. He died at the scene.

There was evidence of alcohol use on the scene and toxicology testing will be conducted to determine whether impairment played a role in this fatal crash. At this time, the preliminary contributing factor to the crash is excessive speed and failure to maintain lane.
