NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A Nashville man faces two counts of attempted vehicular homicide after he allegedly crashed his car into another vehicle intentionally earlier this month.

Detectives began investigating the Dec. 1 crash after receiving a tip to the Crime Stoppers hotline.

Gregory Lee Parker, 54, is accused of telling his two passengers, Latrice Greyer, 42, with whom he was in a relationship, and Henry Breaux, 57, that he was going to kill everyone in the car. Then, he allegedly sped up and turned to hit a parked, unoccupied vehicle head-on in the 1700 block of 23rd Avenue North.

Parker and Greyer were each transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where they were treated and released. Breaux was injured but refused transportation to the hospital, police said.

Parker, whose previous convictions include domestic assault, burglary, public intoxication and forgery, is now charged with two counts of attempted vehicular homicide.

He was jailed on $500,000 bond.
