A Nashville man indicted in the Labor Day hit and run of a 22-year-old woman on Bell Road surrendered to police Tuesday afternoon.

Metro police believe Jason Guy, 35, who has been previously convicted of drunken driving, may have been texting and intoxicated when his Nissan pickup truck hit Carrie Holmes as she walked along Bell Road around 7:45 p.m. on Sept. 6.

Holmes died at Vanderbilt University Medical Center five days later. Guy is charged with vehicular homicide by intoxication, vehicular homicide by recklessness and leaving the scene of a fatal crash.

Police said a passenger in Guy’s truck returned to the scene immediately after the crash, informing police he and Guy had been drinking and that he told Guy to stop after the crash but he refused.

Guy contacted police the morning after the crash because he said he heard news reports that a woman had been struck in the area where he had been driving.

Guy, of Demonbreun Street, was convicted of driving under the influence in 2001.
