NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A grand jury found 55-year-old Daniel Strong responsible for the death of a 65-year-old man in a February 28 crash.

Frank Haney died in the two-vehicle crash on Interstate 65 South at Rosa Parks Boulevard.

Police say Haney was in the front passenger seat of a Chevrolet Blazer traveling southbound on I-65 when it was hit by Strong’s Nissan Altima.

According to witnesses, just before the collision, Strong was driving in an erratic manner. He was reportedly swerving on the roadway when he suddenly veered right, striking the Chevy Blazer causing it to roll over.

Haney and his driver were both transported to Vanderbilt Medical Center where the driver was treated for injuries that were not life-threatening. Haney later died from his injuries in March.

Police say Strong initially ran away from the scene but was quickly taken into custody.

Strong was indicted on a charge of vehicular homicide by recklessness. At the time of the indictment, he was in jail on unrelated charges.
