As police investigate a deadly crash in Murfreesboro, eyewitnesses have cited concerns about speeding in the area where the wreck occurred.

It happened around 9 p.m. Saturday night in the 1600 block of Riverview Drive.

Police say a vehicle left the roadway and struck a tree.

The driver of the vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene.

A passenger was taken by life-flight to Vanderbilt Medical Center with serious injuries.

The crash is under investigation.

A neighbor who witnessed the accident said she saw the impact and called 911. She said there have been other wrecks in that area because of a curve in the road. The speed limit is 30 mph, but the neighbor said drivers go around it too fast all the time.
