FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Officers in South Nashville are on the lookout for David G. Torres, 26, whose pickup truck was the at-fault vehicle in a double-fatal crash Thursday night near the intersection of Nolensville Pike and Harding Place. The driver of the pickup truck ran away from the scene. His description, as provided by witnesses, is similar to Torres’.
Torres’ 2011 GMC pickup truck collided with a 2015 Nissan Sentra at 7:35 p.m. The Sentra was attempting to cross Nolensville Pike, west to east, from the parking lot of U.S. Bank to Wal-Mart at 4040 Nolensville Pike. The GMC, traveling north on Nolensville Pike, hit the passenger side of the Sentra, sending it off the east side of the roadway, through a fence and into a tree on Wal-Mart property. Witnesses reported that just prior to the collision, the GMC was speeding and ran the red light at the intersection of Nolensville Pike and Harding Place.
The two occupants of the Sentra were fatally injured. The passenger, a 23-year-old woman, died at the scene. The driver, a 26-year-old man, died shortly after arriving at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Both were wearing seatbelts. Efforts are underway to locate and notify their families.
Anyone seeing David G. Torres, who is last known to have lived on Cedarmont Drive, is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
