Following the preliminary investigation, police say 61-year-old Alexander Nwaibe was driving his 2012 Mercedes GL4 at a high rate of speed westbound on Bell Road. His vehicle then left the roadway, traveled down a sidewalk, hit a culvert and began fishtailing.

The car rolled several times, during which the two children were ejected.

Metro police reported one of the children — four-year-old Denzil Nwaibe — was rushed to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The other child — a three-year-old girl — received non-life-threatening injuries. Neither was restrained nor wearing a seatbelt.

The children’s father was also injured and has been hospitalized, according to Metro police. He was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash and showed no signs of impairment.

He is now facing the following charges:

  • Vehicular Homicide
  • Aggravated Child Endangerment (x2)
  • Aggravated Child Neglect (x2)

Nwaibe will be arrested upon his release from the hospital.
