Police: Speeding Driver Did Not Stop After Fatal Crash
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Police are searching for the driver of a car who caused a deadly wreck on I-24 on Wednesday night.
It happened around 6 p.m. on I-24 in Clarksville near Mile Marker 5.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol said a truck and a car were traveling westbound on I-24. One was in the right lane, the other in the left lane when a third car approached them from the rear at a high rate of speed weaving in and out of traffic.
Investigators said the third car went around the two others even though there wasn't a lane.
As a result, the two vehicles almost collided, and in trying to avoid a crash, 38-year-old Brian Lokey lost control of his Ford F-150 pickup.
Investigators said the pickup rolled over and flipped near the Exit 4 ramp. The second vehicle managed to stop.
Lokey was killed, and his 14-year-old daughter, Hannah, was hurt in the crash. Both were wearing their seatbelts.
The THP said the speeding vehicle didn't stop to help anyone, and has not been located.
