Posted on Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015
A football player from Nashville Christian School in Tennessee lost his life in a car accident on Thursday, July 30 just outside of Joelton.
Nashville Christian football coach Jeff Brothers said the victim, identified as Mickey Martin, was nearly home – “literally 45 seconds from home” – according to his coach, when his vehicle veered off the roadway and crashed into a tree. Brothers believed Martin had fallen asleep behind the wheel. Martin died on impact.
Two teammates of Martin’s had been inside the vehicle at the time of the incident – Brant Lawless and Mareio McGraw. Lawless sustained non-life-threatening injuries while McGraw may require more recovery time, according to staff at the local hospital where the two were held.
The team at Pohl & Berk, LLP extend our sincerest condolences to the family and friends of the victim of this tragedy during this very difficult time.
