Speeding, Failure to Yield to Blame for Deadly Motorcycle Crash
Nashville (August 6, 2020) – A fatal accident occurred last week when a motorcyclist collided with a minivan on Old Hickory Boulevard near Interstate 40.
Darrell Clark, a 37-year-old man, was riding his motorcycle southbound on Old Hickory at a high rate of speed. The driver of the minivan was attempting to turn left onto the I-40 from the northbound lanes of Old Hickory.
That driver, 63-year-old Robert Rucker, failed to yield the right of way to Clark. Clark then struck the passenger side of the minivan and died of his injuries, despite wearing a helmet. Police say the motorcycle accident was caused by both Clark’s speeding and Rucker’s failure to yield.
