According to a press release from the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department, 49 year old Scott Van Eaton, of Fontanelle, was driving his Harley Davidson motorcycle with his 17 year old daughter, Zoey Van Eaton, as a passenger, when he lost control of the vehicle while negotiating a curve.
The motorcycle slid into oncoming traffic and was struck by a Subaru SUV.
