NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A Ft. Campbell soldier was charged with vehicular homicide by recklessness in connection to deadly crash that happened in June.

Metro Nashville Police officials say 23-year-old Danny Weld-Ebanks is responsible for the crash that killed 47-year-old Matthew Kenigson at the I-40 east/I-24 east split in Davidson Co.

Weld-Ebanks was allegedly traveling in an Audi A4 on I-40 east at a high rate of speed in the right lanes just after midnight on June 14. Witnesses said he had been weaving through traffic.

As the Audi approached the I-24 split, it veered to the left across the gore area to continue on I-40 east. Kenigson was in the gore area in his Nissan Frontier pickup truck which was struck in the rear by the Audi. One witness reported that the Nissan’s reverse lights were on prior to the crash. Kenigson died at the scene.

Weld-Ebanks and his passenger, Brenden Evans, 28, also of Ft. Campbell, were not seriously hurt.

Weld-Ebanks is jailed in lieu of $15,000 bond.
