Posted: Updated:

GALLATIN, Tenn. -- New information was released late Sunday evening about a deadly weekend crash in Sumner County. Saturday's crash on Hartsville Pike near Kemp Road, just outside Gallatin killed two people.

Witnesses told police a white Ford pickup truck, driven by Jack Overholser, was trying to go around two cars on Hartsville Pike, which is a two-lane road. The truck collided head-on with a black Chevy Avalanche coming the opposite direction. 

Two people in the black Chevy were killed, including the driver, Kyle Shrum, and a passenger, Amy Shrum, both of Castalian Springs. Three other people in that vehicle were injured, including Naomi Clark, along with an 8-year-old child and a 1-year-old infant. 

All three surviving passengers in the Chevy, as well as the driver of the white Ford pickup truck were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment. Vanderbilt's Life Flight helicopter was brought in to transport the 8-year-old child.

Officials said both children are recovering. The condition of the other survivors was not immediately released. Charges against the driver of the white Ford pickup could be filed on Monday.

Hartsville Pike was shut down for several hours while deputies investigated the crash on Saturday.

Witnesses said accidents are common along Hartsville Pike, and they hope this tragedy reminds other drivers to be careful.

"It makes me scared to drive," said Kayla Deeter, who witnessed the crash. "I drive a little car and if someone doesn't see me, they could plow into me.  It's scary.  It really shook me up."

"I am going to pray for the people involved everyday," said Isaiah Deeter, who also witnessed the crash." "It feels terrible to see it."
