Police: Speeding Driver Did Not Stop After Fatal Crash

Posted: Updated:

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.

The investigation is ongoing.
