Metro police said the driver of a Dodge Neon, 22-year-old Nathan Zarzycki of Pennsylvania, told investigators he got tired and pulled over on the shoulder, put his flashers on, and went to sleep.
Two people were killed when a passenger van rolled over in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 40 in Hermitage Wednesday morning. The accident occurred about 6 a.m. near the exit for Old Hickory Boulevard. Nathan Zarzycki, 22, of Brodheadsville, Pennsylvania told investigators that after growing fatigued, he pulled over his Dodge Neon on what he thought was the shoulder, put his flashers on, and went to sleep. There were four passengers in the Neon. Mark King, 50, of Cookeville, was driving a Ford van at the same time. King reported that the Dodge Neon was stopped in the far-left lane without any lights on. He said a collision was unavoidable, and the van smashed into the back of the Neon, causing the van to overturn. King was minorly injured. Two of the Neon's passengers, Ulrique Severe, 26, of Brooklyn, New York and a 22-year-old Pennsylvania man were pronounced dead at the scene. Another third passenger, Kishon Forsyth, 22, of Brooklyn, was transported to Vanderbilt Hospital with life-threatening injuries. A fourth passenger 22-year-old Kristopher Duviellia, also of Pennsylvania, and Zarzycki were both brought to Vanderbilt with non-life threatening injuries. Finally, a 2011 Volkswagen sedan driven by Matthew Pierce, 28, of Cookeville, swerved to avoid the collision but struck the van. Pierce was uninjured.
