NASHVILLE, TN – A two-car accident on Interstate 40 in Nashville left a Tennessee Titans cheerleader critically injured, according to WSMV.
Police said 24-year-old Patrick Holz was driving a Jeep Wrangler on I-40 east at Exit 210C just before midnight on Saturday when the crash occurred.
Investigators said Holz’s vehicle was hit from behind by a Ford Explorer and the cars went skidding along a guardrail.
The Jeep rolled and Holz was thrown from his vehicle. He was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. Authorities said he was not wearing a seat belt at the time. The driver of the Explorer was hospitalized, but the injuries were not regarded as life-threatening.
According to police, the crash was apparently caused by the driver of the Ford Explorer not yielding the right of way.
