NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A Nashville woman was killed Saturday in a three-car collision involving a motorcycle.

Carolyn Lumley, 52, was the passenger on the back of a Harley Davidson driven by 55-year-old Thomas Lumley.

The accident happened as they pulled out from a private residence in the 400 block of Old Hickory Boulevard.

Police said the motorcycle was struck by an Oldsmobile Ciera traveling eastbound.

Thomas Lumley was thrown into the road and Carolyn hit the windshield of the Oldsmobile.

That car was then rear-ended by a Chevrolet Impala, followed by a third car that ran into the back of it.

Thomas and Carolyn Lumley were both taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where Carolyn was pronounced dead.

Thomas Lumley and the driver of the Oldsmobile suffered minor injuries.

Authorities said there was no evidence of drugs or alcohol. They believe the accident was caused by the motorcycle's failure to yield.
