Road Rage Crash

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (September 24, 2021) – Murfreesboro Police Department officers are investigating a possible road rage incident involving a motorcycle rider and the driver of an SUV on Friday, Sept. 24. The SUV flipped after it crashed into a City of Murfreesboro Rover bus. Several people were injured.  

The crash occurred in front of Bumpus Harley Davidson on NW Broad St. around 5:53 p.m.  

The driver of the SUV told police a motorcyclist pointed a gun at him on I-840. The SUV driver said he followed the motorcyclist to Bumpus and ended up colliding with the Rover bus and flipping onto its roof. The bus crashed into a utility pole. Murfreesboro Fire Rescue Department firefighters stabilized the overturned SUV and helped the occupants out. 

There were three people inside the SUV, a father, mother, and their 9-year-old daughter. 

The mother, her daughter, and the bus driver were taken to the hospital by personnel with Rutherford County Emergency Medical Services. All were alert and talking. As a precaution, the 9-year-old was later transported to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital by a LifeFlight helicopter. 

The SUV driver was not injured but received a citation for reckless driving, and officers obtained a warrant for reckless endangerment for chasing after the motorcyclist. 

Police were not able to locate the motorcycle rider. 

There were no passengers on the bus. 

Bumpus Harley Davidson was hosting a biker’s event in the parking lot at the time of the crash, but no bystanders were hurt.

The crash remains under investigation.
