NEW: The Metro Nashville Poice Department’s (MNPD) Fatal Crash Team is now releasing more information regarding the crash. Following their on-scene investigation, officers determined that a Volkswagen Beetle, driven by Jurgis Juodenas, 75, of Greenbrier, was traveling north on Springfield Highway when a southbound Kia Sorento, driven by Charles Holt, 58, of Springfield, crossed into the northbound lane and collided with the Volkswagen.
