FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

David G. Torres, 27, is jailed in lieu of $300,000 bond after surrendering on a grand jury indictment charging him with two counts each of vehicular homicide by recklessness and intoxication for the crash last November 28th on Nolensville Pike near the Harding Place intersection that killed two TSU students.

Torres’ 2011 GMC pickup truck collided with a Nissan Sentra as the car was attempting to cross Nolensville Pike, west to east, from the parking lot of U.S. Bank to Wal-Mart at 4040 Nolensville Pike. Witnesses reported that just prior to the collision, the pickup truck was speeding and ran the red light at the intersection of Nolensville Pike and Harding Place. The two occupants of the Sentra, Vybhav Gopisetty, 26, and Judy Stanley Pinheiro, 23, were killed.

The driver of the pickup truck, which was registered to Torres, abandoned it and fled the scene on foot. Torres came forward last December 1st with an attorney and would not answer questions about the crash. Officers executed a search warrant for Torres’ DNA before allowing him to leave that day.
