1 dead following crash between school bus, 2 cars on Dickerson Pike


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — One person is dead following a crash on Dickerson Pike Monday afternoon.

It happened in the 2500 block of Dickerson Pike, near Dellway Drive, just after 3 p.m.

Police say the crash involved a school bus and two other vehicles.

Following the preliminary investigation, police said a Nissan Rogue — driven by a 66-year-old woman— was attempting a left turn onto Dickerson Pike from Lemuel Road. At that time, she collided with a Volkswagen Jetta — driven by Emmanuel Edmondson, 19 — that was traveling southbound.

The Jetta then hit a school bus that was in the middle turn lane of Dickerson Pike.

Edmondson died at the scene. The bus driver, the driver of the Nissan and her passenger were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

No students were on the bus at the time of the crash. The bus belongs to Rocketship Charter School.

Officials say the preliminary contributing factors in the crash appear to be excessive speed by Edmondson and failure to yield by Moore.
