Derek Doster, 36, of Kingston Springs, was a passenger in a Jeep Gladiator, which Metro police believe is the vehicle that started the chain of events.
Investigators believe the Jeep was traveling northeast on Charlotte Pike at a high rate of speed when the 21-year-old driver lost control of the vehicle and then overcorrected.
Metro police reported the Jeep rolled onto its driver side and began to slide, causing four other vehicles to crash. All parties were wearing seatbelts, with the exception of Doster and the driver of the Jeep.
Doster died shortly after arriving at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
The driver of the Jeep was critically injured. A blood sample from him will be analyzed by the MNPD Crime Laboratory to determine whether alcohol or drugs were a factor in this crash.
No additional information was immediately released.
