Clarksville police have identified the drivers involved in a crash involving a pickup and a car early Sunday that claimed the life of a young man.
The collision happened around 12:37 a.m. at the intersection of Trenton Road and 101st Parkway.
Police said Kristen B. Miller, 23, was driving a pickup south on Trenton Road and failed to yield to a Honda driven by a 26-year-old Tegan K. Papageorge.
