Police have identified the teenage driver killed Monday morning in a two-vehicle wreck on Interstate 440 near Nolensville Pike as William Garton, of Westboro Drive.
Garton, 18, was driving westbound on I-440 around 11 a.m. when he apparently lost control of his BMW car, sending it over the center median into the opposite lanes of traffic on I-440, according to police.
A van driven by 23-year-old Tremayne Wade then struck Garton’s car on the driver’s side.
Garton died at the scene, while 18-year-old Carlos Gomez, a passenger in Garton’s car, was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in critical condition.
Wade sustained non-life threatening injuries and was also transported to Vanderbilt.
According to police, there was no evidence of drug or alcohol involvement at the scene.
