The man killed in Monday’s 3:15 p.m. three-vehicle collision on Dickerson Pike at Lemuel Road is identified as Emmanuel Edmondson, 19, of Nashville. The preliminary investigation shows that the driver of a Nissan Rogue, Deborah Moore, 66, was on Lemuel Road when she attempted to turn left onto Dickerson Pike and collided with Edmondson’s southbound Volkswagen Jetta, causing the Jetta to crash into the front of a school bus which was in the center turn lane on Dickerson Pike preparing to turn left onto Lemuel Road. The only person on the bus was the driver. Edmondson died at the scene. The bus driver, Moore, and Moore’s passenger were transported to Skyline Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
There was no evidence of alcohol or drug involvement at the scene. The preliminary contributing factors to this fatal crash appear to be excessive speed on the part of Edmondson and failure to yield the right of way on the part of Moore.
