Brian McAlister, 30, surrendered to Metro police Thursday morning after allegedly providing police with his brother's identity following Wednesday’s fatal wreck on Myatt Drive.

McAlister, according to police, was driving on the wrong side of the road just before his vehicle crashed head-on into a vehicle driven by Glenn E. Davis, 64, of Hendersonville, who died in the crash.

McAlister, of Greenbrier, is charged with identity theft, driving with a revoked license and filing a false report. Police said he told them he didn't know why he was driving on the wrong side of the road and that he may have been asleep at the wheel. He originally gave police the name of his younger brother.

Barbara Davis, 62, was in stable condition at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

According to police, there was no evidence of drug or alcohol involvement in the crash. McAlister was booked into Davidson County jail this morning. His bond was set at $35,000.

The district attorney's office and police will decide whether to charge McAlister with additional crimes relating to the crash.
