Five vehicles were involved in the wreck at about 1:50 p.m., according to investigators.
Police said according to witness statements, a BMW sports utility vehicle traveling west on Battery Lane had to swerve to avoid hitting a small sports car going in the opposite direction.
The SUV left the roadway momentarily, then came back onto Battery Lane and struck the rear of a westbound Honda Accord, police said, before crossing into the eastbound lane and striking a Lexus sedan head-on.
The SUV crashed into the rear of a Buick LeSabre, according to investigators.
Officers said the woman in the Lexus was killed in the impact. They identified her as Reiko Zealear, 57, of Pennywell Drive. Police said Zealear was not wearing a seat belt. She was the owner of Reiko Ultimate Skin Care located along Highway 100 in Belle Meade.
Investigators said the SUV driver, Natalie Curcio, 32, of south Nashville, was transported to Vanderbilt Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
The driver of the Honda was not injured, according to police, while the Buick driver was treated at a local hospital and released.
Zealear was married to nationally known Otolaryngologist Dave Zealear, who is a Vanderbilt doctor/researcher teacher and inventor. She leaves behind two grown children and their five grandchildren.
Witnesses said a white man with salt and pepper hair driving a Jaguar caused the wreck. Police have asked that anyone who may have seen the small sports car contact them at 615-862-8600 or fatal crash investigators at 615-862-7738.
