Metro police have identified the person killed late Wednesday morning in an automobile wreck near Summit Medical Center as 42-year-old Michelle Delk, of Portland.
The accident occurred just after 11 a.m. when a Pontiac Grand Am driven by Delk’s niece, 22-year-old Emily Boyer, crossed into oncoming traffic while making a left turn into the medical center entrance off of Old Hickory Boulevard.
An Audi station wagon carrying three adults and two children collided into the passenger side of the Grand Am, knocking that vehicle onto its roof and into another vehicle.
Boyer, also of Portland, was not critically injured. Passengers in the other two vehicles were not injured.
According to police, no evidence at the scene pointed to the involvement of alcohol or drugs in this crash, but at this time the contributing factor appears to be Boyer's failure to yield.
