A Murfreesboro man will be charged with vehicular homicide after a late-night crash killed one and injured another.

Lamar Hunt, 44, will be charged with vehicular homicide, leaving the scene of a crash and several other offenses after a Tuesday morning car crash on Old Hickory Boulevard near Owen Drive, according to Metro Nashville police.

A preliminary investigation conducted by police detectives show Hunt passing vehicles on a right shoulder before he overcorrected and entered the opposite traffic lane. Hunt then struck a car carrying two people, pushing them off the roadway, killing the passenger in the vehicle and seriously injuring the driver.

Police said both victims were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash. The man killed has been identified as Jeffrey Tenzera, 63, of Mt. Juliet.

After the accident, Hunt was picked up from the scene and returned home before being taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, according to Nashville police.

Police said a search warrant was issued for a blood sample of Hunt at the hospital.
