76-year-old woman killed in head-on crash on Briley Parkway

Posted: Updated:

Police have identified the 76-year-old woman who was killed in a crash on Sunday afternoon.

According to Metro police, the victim was a passenger in a 2006 Chevrolet Impala that was exiting Briley Parkway east onto Ellington Parkway north. 

The driver failed to negotiate a curve on the ramp, traveled across the grass median and onto the Briley Parkway east on-ramp, where it ran into a 2010 Chrysler 300 just after 4 p.m.

Police identified the victim as Myrtle Evans, of Nashville. She was taken to TriStar Skyline Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

The driver of the Impala, 81-year-old Leroy Cunningham, was transported with non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the Chrysler and her passenger were treated at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

Authorities say the Impala’s excessive speed on the wet road contributed to the crash.
