Jessie Knox Obituary News: 43-year-old Nashville man identified as victim in fatal crash involving a stolen truck in The Nations.

The passenger who died in a collision in The Nations on Tuesday afternoon has now been identified as 43-year-old Jessie Knox of Nashville.

According to the Metro Nashville Police Department, Knox was declared deceased at the scene. The driver of the stolen car in which Knox was riding attempted to evade police, and the hunt is still on for them.

Earlier in the day, the pickup truck that was involved in the collision was taken from a home on South Nashville’s Spring Path Lane.

A Chevrolet 2500 pickup truck blew by a policeman who was trying to conduct a traffic stop at around 2:30 p.m. and went through a person’s yard. The car turned onto Michigan Avenue after going off-road and into an open lot, sparking a brief chase.

Authorities claim that the officer turned off his emergency equipment and chose not to pursue the car after determining that he would not stop. After proceeding through the alley, the officer turned into the street, where he was stopped by onlookers.

The vehicle was driving down Michigan Avenue when it struck a Buick Envision in the rear at the intersection of 51st Avenue North, according to the police. According to the police, the Buick’s driver had the right of way but was unable to stop the collision.

The pickup broke when it struck a utility pole head-on. After going airborne, the truck landed upside-down atop the pole.

To avoid the police, the driver of the vehicle fled the wreckage through backyards. He was described by the police as a man in his mid-30s with short hair who was dressed in blue pants and a dark sweatshirt. He was not located despite police conducting aerial and ground searches of the region.

After being partially ejected, the passenger—later identified as Knox—died at the scene.

It is requested that anyone with information regarding the driver of the truck contact Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
