NASHVILLE, TN – An Uber driver was killed and three others suffered injuries resulting from a major crash on the shoulder of I-24 early Sunday morning.
According to WTVF, an Uber driver stopped changing a flat tire along I-24 near Murfreesboro Pike. While assessing the situation the driver told his two passengers to call a second Uber to pick them up.
Once the second Uber arrived, the driver exited his vehicle to assist the other driver. At this point, all four individuals were standing on the shoulder of the road.
A Honda SUV rounded the curve and skidded off the roadway before crashing into the vehicles and people on the shoulder.
The second Uber driver sustained fatal injuries in the wreck. The two passengers were hospitalized with varying injuries and the first driver suffered minor injuries.
The 26-year-old driver of the SUV remained at the scene. It is unclear if that individual will face any charges at this time.
