FRANKLIN - A Williamson County grand jury has indicted Jimmy Nall on four counts of vehicular homicide.
Nall, 46, of Fairview, is accused of killing Nashville resident Sherri Glover. He was behind the wheel of a pickup truck on the morning of June 22, driving along Highway 100 near Fairview, when he swerved into the opposite lane and struck Glover head-on, according to the Tennessee Highway Patrol. Glover, 33, was operating a Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle. Police said she was killed instantly, her body thrown into a ditch.
''She was such a sweet girl,'' said her father, Stephen Glover. ''There was no reason for it. She just happened to be in the wrong 20-by-20 square feet of road.''
On Monday a grand jury found enough evidence to indict Nall for vehicular homicide by DUI, vehicular homicide by recklessness, aggravated vehicular homicide by prior DUIs and aggravated vehicular homicide by blood/alcohol content of 0.20% or greater, according to court records. Nall's blood alcohol content was .36, according to a TBI crime lab report. The legal limit is .08. He was convicted for driving while intoxicated in 1994 and 1998 in Davidson County.
Stephen Glover has posted a Web site (www.sherriglover.org) that contains details about the accident and court proceedings, as well as biographical information about his daughter. Glover lives in Florida and said he will come to Williamson County if the case goes to trial. He said he has a list of about 50 of Sherri's friends who have stated they want to be in the courtroom too.
''We're powerless to do anything about this,'' Glover said. ''We can't testify because we didn't witness the accident. We really can't do anything but watch the judge and jury as the police and the DA present the case. It's frustrating.''
Nall remains at the Williamson County Jail on $250,000 bond.
State Trooper Gill Smith wrote that he arrived on the scene around 10:30 a.m. and found Nall passed out in the back of an ambulance. Smith attempted a field sobriety test but stated Nall was too unsteady on his feet to complete the task. A quart bottle of vodka was found in Nall's vehicle and approximately one-third of the liquid was gone.
