Police say 26-year-old Lydia Wilson drove head-on into a guard rail on the exit ramp of I-40E at exit 219 in the early hours of Sunday morning. She claimed the airbags randomly deployed, causing her to crash. She admitted to consuming “2 beers” before driving but refused to say how long ago or what size beers. She later revised that to say she had “2 glasses of wine at the GOAT bar in Mt. Juliet” and was on her way to the Christmas pop-up bar at the Noel Hotel in downtown Nashville. Officers say she reeked of alcohol and performed poorly on field sobriety tests.
Lydia Wilson of Stallion Dr in Nashville, TN, was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on December 11th, charged with implied consent and driving under the influence. A judicial commissioner set her bond at $2,500, and the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office gave her pre-trial release from their facility.
