Police Investigate Whether Medical Condition Caused Crash

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Police want to determine whether a medical condition was to blame for a crash that sent a 64-year-old man to the hospital on Thursday night.

Around 10 p.m., police said the man was driving north on Old Hickory Boulevard in Hermitage when, for unknown reasons, the vehicle crossed a median and two lanes of traffic. His car then struck a tree head-on.

The victim was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

Officers on the scene said the man did not hit the brakes before the crash, so they were investigating whether he may have had a heart attack.

The identity of the victim was not immediately released.

Police continued to investigate.
