A retired officer in the Tennessee National Guard was killed in an off-road vehicle wreck.
Retired Major Lee Sharber died when he lost control of his off-road vehicle around 1:30 a.m. Sunday. He was 44.
Sharber was on a dune buggy with his girlfriend, Leslie Johansen, on Motlow Road when the vehicle hit a patch of uneven surface.
"They were on the way back to her house and he leaned over and kissed her and said, ‘I love you so much,' and she said she noticed the vehicle was veering off the road, hit the telephone pole," said Leon Sharber, Lee Sharber's dad.
Visitation for Lee Sharber will be Wednesday from 4-8 p.m. at Woodfin Funeral Home in Murfreesboro.
His girlfriend was also hurt but is expected to recover.
According to police, Lee Sharber and Johansen were not wearing helmets. Police said alcohol was involved in the crash.
