MPD: ‘Speed was contributing factor’ in Mt. Pisgah crash that killed 1, injured 4
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - One person is dead and four people are in the hospital after a crash in the Mount Pisgah area Wednesday evening.
Officers responded to the three-vehicle crash located in the 3700 block of Weaver Road at 7:59 p.m.
Five victims in total were transported from the crash scene — three non-critical and two critical.
One of the critical victims succumbed to their injuries at the hospital, police say.
Police say speed was a contributing factor in this crash, something that is all too common with straightaways like Weaver Road.
“This should serve as a reminder to us - ‘Slow down Memphis.’ Life is too short, life is too precious,” said MPD Sergeant Louis Brownlee. “Slow down, share the road, get there safe. Someone is depending on you to make it to your destination.”
