Woman administers CPR to man after head-on collision

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) – Subway Police say a woman performed CPR after a man hit her and two other vehicles on Friday night.

According to an affidavit obtained by News4, police were dispatched to 3900 Clarksville Pike where an active traffic accident with injuries was being investigated.

Terah Lynn, the driver of a large jeep involved in the crash, who was later taken to hospital, told police she saw the white van driving head-on towards her vehicle, failing to maintain his lane when the white van swept over him, and he continued driving north Clarksville Pike.

Police say Lynn’s jeep was the third vehicle Bryan E. Legg, 54, struck with his white pickup truck Friday night. He and his passenger were so drugged they passed out.

“Both the passenger and the driver were completely unconscious. One of them his eyes were wide open, the other his eyes were rolled up in his head,” Lynn said as she described what she saw before Legg The strike.

As soon as they collided, Lynn and a passerby ran to their aid.

“Their vehicle was locked so we each took a rock and broke their windows and reached to unlock and assess the situation and they weren’t breathing, completely unconscious, no pulse,” Lynn told News4.

Lynn said she and the bystander performed chest compressions until first responders arrived. She told News4 that her instinct to help, even after wrongdoing, was without hesitation.

The affidavit said Legg and his passenger were taken to Skyline Hospital, where police later contacted him.

Police later met Legg at the hospital, where he could not tell officers what caused him to be in hospital due to the injuries he sustained in the accident. The affidavit noted Legg’s droopy eye, sharp pupils, and hoarse voice as he listened to Legg attempt to recall the incident.

The affidavit says Legg was then able to share that he and his passenger, a friend he had picked up earlier in the day, would be given lower back painkillers. However, the affidavit stated that Legg was not prescribed the drug.

After performing several sobriety tests and testing Legg’s blood, police determined that Narcan, an opiate antagonist that reserves the central nervous system effects of opiate-based narcotics, was present in his blood.

According to the affidavit, Legg was charged with a second impaired driving offence. The first DUI was administered in 2019.
