NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — An 18-year-old who was killed this week in a fiery crash in Antioch will be laid to rest this weekend.

Ephraim Tegegne was killed Tuesday on Crossings Boulevard when his car veered off the road and struck a tree, causing the Nissan Altima to burst into flames.

Four teenage passengers - three females and one male - managed to get out of the car and are in stable condition at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Police said Tegegne’s foot was pinned in the car, preventing him from getting out.

His funeral will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at Christ Church Nashville on Old Hickory Boulevard.
