NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A Nashville man has been charged in connection with a deadly July crash that killed a pedestrian from Memphis.
According to Metro police, 49-year-old Kevin Messer was charged on a grand jury indictment accusing him of vehicular homicide by recklessness for a crash that happened on July 14 in the 3900 block of Apache Trail.
