Fatal Crash Claims Mt. Juliet Man
September 22, 2013
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The man killed in Saturday night’s scooter-car collision near the intersection of Lebanon Pike and Spence Lane is identified as Paul Woodcock, 48, of Mt. Juliet.
Woodcock was riding his Genuine Buddy 125 scooter eastbound on Lebanon Pike at 11:15 p.m. when he collided with a 2003 Infiniti G35 driven by Dustin Bunch, 35, of Bowling Green, Kentucky. The preliminary investigation indicates that Bunch, who was traveling west on Lebanon Pike, turned left into the Shell at 1501 Lebanon Pike, resulting in the scooter colliding with the Infiniti. Woodcock, who was wearing a helmet, died at the scene. Bunch reported that he did not see the scooter. There was no evidence at the scene that Bunch was impaired.
The preliminary contributing factor to this crash is failure to yield on the part of Bunch. The investigation continues.
