Nineteen-year-old William Stuart has been charged with vehicular homicide after being involved in a single-car accident where a passenger was ejected and killed in the early morning hours of Sept. 28.
Logan Thibedeau, 19, was found deceased on the scene when trooper J. Hoyt arrived at 4:20 a.m.
The crash occurred at the intersection of Glen Raven Road and Stroudville Road. According to the report by Hoyt, Stuart admitted to excessive speeding and running the stop sign at the intersection.
Assistant Chief Russel Gupton of the Robertson County Emergency Medical Services, said officials reported up to six possible passengers in the vehicle at the time of the crash. It’s believed two passengers fled the scene before authorities arrived. No serious injuries were documented outside of the deceased.
Stuart also admitted to having “at least three beers” before the accident happened. Hoyt observed in his report that Stuart smelled strongly of alcohol. Stuart failed the field sobriety test and was recorded having a 0.12 blood alcohol content.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol is currently working with Robertson County Assistant District Attorney Jason White and his office on investigating the crash.
“All we can confirm at this time is this crash is a single vehicle fatal rollover that involves an ejection,” Lt. Charlie Caplinger said.
No other comments were given since the investigation is still ongoing.
