A Nashville teen died early Saturday morning after driving about two miles into oncoming traffic on Interstate 65 near Armory Drive.
Andrew M. D'Aquila, 18, of Maymanor Circle, was driving his 1994 Honda Civic northbound in the southbound lanes when he collided with a Chevrolet Tahoe at 1:40 a.m.
The driver of the SUV, William Calhoun, 20, of Louisville, Ky. Calhoun told investigators that he suddenly saw headlights coming toward him and tried to swerve to avoid the Honda, but was unsuccessful.
Neither Calhoun nor his five passengers were seriously hurt.
Motorists reported seeing the vehicle traveling the wrong for about two miles, police said.
Police said they don’t know why D'Aquila was driving the wrong way. There were no signs of drugs or alcohol at the scene. The Medical Examiner’s Office will conduct toxicology tests.
