February 1, 2018
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The man killed in a two-vehicle collision late Wednesday at 4:40 p.m. on River Road Pike near Old River Road is identified as Wallace Holleman, 85, of Burton Hills Boulevard.
The driver of a westbound 2012 Honda Accord, Jason Eddy, 42, reported that as he attempted to pass Holleman’s westbound 2015 Nissan Versa in the eastbound lane, he saw an oncoming vehicle and attempted to swerve back into the westbound lane. As he merged back into the lane, Eddy struck the Nissan which traveled off the roadway and struck a tree. Holleman died at the scene. Eddy, of Ashland City, was not injured. There was no evidence of alcohol or drug involvement at the scene.
The preliminary contributing factor to this fatal crash appears to be improper passing by Eddy. The crash investigation will be staffed with the District Attorney’s Office for a determination on whether charges will be placed.
