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.
