NASHVILLE, TN – A man has been arrested in connection with a 2019 crash in South Nashville that killed two college students, WKRN reported.

27-year-old David Torres was indicted earlier this month on two counts of vehicular homicide by intoxication.  The charges stem from an accident last November 28.

Police say Torres was behind the wheel of a pickup truck that crashed into a car near the intersection of Nolensville Pike and Harding Place. The driver of the car, 26-year-old Vybhav Gopisetty, and his passenger, 23-year-old Judy Stanley Pinheiro, were both killed. They were students at Tennessee State University.

Torres was jailed Tuesday, with bond set at $300,000.  A date was not immediately set for his first court date.
