According to WNCT-TV, two vehicles crashed in downtown Nashville on April 16, causing one to rollover.

The accident took place at the intersection of Rosa Parks Boulevard and Church Street, around 4:15 a.m. Authorities said that a Toyota truck was hit by a Ford Explorer, forcing the truck to roll over.

The Explorer was occupied by three women, who told police they were heading south on Rosa Parks Boulevard when they ran a red light.

The driver of the truck, Nathan Bolton, an Elkton police officer, was transported to a nearby hospital with injuries. He reportedly suffered a severe concussion and was knocked unconscious.

“I don’t remember anything about the wreck. I still don’t,” Officer Bolton told WNCT.

The women are reportedly bartenders at Coyote Ugly. The driver of the Explorer was cited for inattentive driving.

“Inattentive driving is something that can always be prevented,” Bolton told WNCT. “People really need to pay attention to what they are doing. Driving is no joke.”


In addition to death, rollover accidents can result in catastrophic injuries like spinal cord injurytraumatic brain injury (TBI) or broken bones. This occurs because occupants can be thrown around during the crash, sometimes even out of the vehicle.

Some of the leading causes of rollover accidents are alcohol and drugs, medical emergencies, distracted driving and defective auto parts.
