26-year-old Tamaricus Tanner is jailed on a grand jury indictment charging him with vehicular homicide by intoxication, aggravated assault, and recklessness. His blood-alcohol level on the day of the crash was determined to have been above the legal limit. The charges stem from last November’s single-vehicle crash on Whites Creek Pike near Old Clarksville Pike that claimed the life of Tanner’s backseat passenger, Parker McCorvey, 26.
Tanner was driving his 2017 Jeep Patriot north on Whites Creek Pike when he failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway and struck a rock embankment. McCorvey was critically injured and died days later. Tanner and three other passengers sustained non-life-threatening injuries. Tanner’s blood alcohol level on the day of the crash was .10, above the legal .08 threshold. He is jailed in lieu of $100,000 bond.
Tamaricus Tanner was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on May 6th, charged with one count of vehicular homicide (intoxication), three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon (reckless), and violation of the open container law. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $100,000.
