Two cars, driven by Charles Cartmell IV and Davon Hicks, were racing down Whites Creek Pike in mid-October. Witnesses say that the cars were speeding and bumping into each other and that at least one driver was firing gunshots. Both vehicles crashed into the Precision Plumbing building, and one of them broke through the wall.
Two employees were inside the building when the accident occurred. Julia Tuttle and Danielle Krantz both required medical treatment for injuries they sustained.
After crashing their vehicles, both drivers left their cars and fled the scene in opposite directions. Witnesses told police that Cartmell hid something in a culvert. Police found a pound of marijuana and a handgun stashed nearby. Cartmell faces felony drug and weapon charges upon his release from the hospital.
Police said that the gunfire did not injure anyone, and they are still investigating the reasons behind the shooting.
Any one of the negligent decisions made by these drivers could have caused injury or death to innocent bystanders. We are thankful that the two employees survived with non-threatening injuries.
