Nashville teen killed, another injured in I-440 wreck

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A Nashville teen was killed and another seriously injured in a car wreck Monday morning on Interstate 440 east of Interstate 65.

William Garton, 18, of Westboro Drive, died after police said he lost control of the 1995 BMW sedan he was driving westbound on I-440 near Nolensville Pike just before 11 a.m.

The vehicle traveled through the center median into the eastbound lanes of I-440, where it was struck on the driver's side by a 2005 Dodge Ram van, police said.

Garton died at the scene, and his passenger, Carlos Gomez, 18, of Eastboro Drive, was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in critical condition.

The driver of the van was also transported to Vanderbilt for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, police said.

Investigators said there was no evidence of drug or alcohol involvement at the scene.

Police said they do not know why Garton lost control of the vehicle, but much of Middle Tennessee was experiencing steady rain at the time of the wreck.

Officials closed I-440 east of I-65 while investigating at the scene. All lanes were reopened by 2 p.m.
