NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Nashville police say there was evidence of alcohol in a car that struck an SUV head-on, killing a passenger and injuring four children.

Killed in the crash Saturday night was 29-year-old Stacy Thornton. She was the girlfriend of the SUV’s driver, 29-year-old Lawrence D. Belt, who was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with serious injuries.

Belt’s 10-month-old daughter is listed in very critical condition at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital. His other children - ages 7, 5 and 2 - are all in stable condition.

The driver of the other vehicle, 20-year-old Carl Dollarhide, is in critical but stable condition at Vanderbilt.

Investigators say Dollarhide was speeding when he crossed over into the path of the SUV.

Authorities didn’t elaborate, but say there was evidence of alcohol in Dollarhide’s vehicle. No charges have been filed.
