28-year-old Tiearis Autry had a head-on-collision near Exit 216 on I-40 West in the early hours of April 18th. When the police arrived, they noticed Autry standing next to her vehicle, which was facing the wrong direction on the right shoulder before the exit ramp. When officers asked her what happened, she said she had gotten onto the interstate in the wrong direction. Autry then stated she struck another vehicle and was confused about where she was. Autry said she was in downtown Nashville at Chili’s, where she had one shot of Tito’s Vodka about two hours before the crash. Officers noticed a slight alcoholic odor as she tried to provide them with her driver’s credentials, so they asked her to take sobriety tests. Autry consented to sobriety tests and performed poorly. Autry then agreed to give a breath sample, which resulted in a 0.141 BAC%, and she was taken into custody for driving under the influence.
