Metro police arrested a man and woman charging them with vehicular homicide by intoxication following an early Saturday morning incident and the subsequent death of one of the victims.
Jeffrey Brooksher, 22, died Monday at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Another man, 23-year-old Glenn Allen Jr., is still in critical condition.
According to police, Trevor Bradshaw, 23, was allegedly drunk while driving his girlfriend’s car along Demonbreun Street around 2:25 a.m. when he struck both Brooksher and Allen. Bradshaw fled the scene but later surrendered to police.
At the time, he faced two felony counts of vehicular assault and one count of leaving the scene of an injury crash, and was released on $7,500 bond. Bradshaw’s girlfriend, 21-year-old Erin C. Brown, was in the front seat and received minor injuries in the collision.
Police arrested Brown Saturday night on two counts of vehicular assault for allowing Bradshaw to drive her vehicle while allegedly intoxicated. Brown at that time was released on those charges.
Monday afternoon, both Bradshaw and Brown were booked on the vehicular homicide charges with their bonds having been set at $80,000 and $50,000 respectively.
