THOMPSON'S STATION, Tenn. (WTVF) — A Thompson's Station family is mourning the loss of a mother and son who were killed in a crash in Williamson County Sun., Dec. 20.

The Danylov family, 35-year-old Olga, 36-year-old Egor, 4-year-old Nicholas and 9-year-old Victoria, were headed to the store Sunday in their 2018 Infiniti QX8.

But as they drove east on Goose Creek Bypass, a westbound 2016 Dodge Ram, driven by 37-year-old William Andrews of Lebanon, crossed over the center line and hit them, according to the Tennessee Highway Patrol report.

It was a drive Jason Peveler says he will never forget.

"All of sudden I just watched the driver just do a slow easy right into oncoming traffic."

Peveler says he saw a pickup truck swerve head on into an SUV and inside the vehicle was the Danylov family.
He jumped into action to find his neighbors fighting for their lives.

Peveler says he still remembers the words of a scared husband and father.

"Help my wife, help my wife, help my wife. Where's my son," said Peveler.

The tragic news hitting the Thompson's Station community hard. Neighbors rallied together to light a candle in remembrance of the lives lost too soon.

"We kind of need to know our neighbors more, because you never know what's going to happen," said Peveler.

The family was hit on Goose Creek at McLemore Circle. Both vehicles came to a stop off of the roadway.

Victoria and the other driver, William Andrews, were injured and received treatment at Vanderbilt Medical Center. Egor Danylov refused transport, then later requested to be evaluated by Williamson Medical Center.

THP officials confirmed that toxicology results are pending.

A friend of the Danylov family set up a gofundme page to help pay for the funeral expenses.

Funeral arrangements will be at the Williamson Memorial funeral home. Visitation open to the public on Tuesday from 2 to 4 with a graveside service following visitation.
