The Nashville woman killed in a motorcycle-three car collision last night on Old Hickory Boulevard in Madison is identified as Carolyn Lumley, 52.
Lumley was a passenger on a Harley Davidson motorcycle driven by Thomas Lumley, 55.  The preliminary investigation indicates that Thomas Lumley pulled out of a private driveway in the 400 block of Old Hickory Boulevard when the motorcycle was struck by an eastbound Oldsmobile Ciera driven by Angela Eaton, 57, of Madison.  Thomas Lumley was thrown onto the roadway.  Carolyn Lumley was thrown into the Oldsmobile’s windshield.  The driver of a Chevrolet Impala then struck the rear of the Oldsmobile causing the driver of a Nissan Altima to collide with the rear of the Impala.
Thomas and Carolyn Lumley, both of Tamworth Drive, and Eaton were all transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where Carolyn Lumley was pronounced deceased.  Thomas Lumley and Eaton are being treated for non-life threatening injuries.  The drivers of the other two vehicles involved were not injured.
There was no evidence of drug or alcohol involvement at the scene.  The preliminary contributing factor to this fatal crash appears to be failure to yield by the motorcyclist.
