DUI Victim Would Have Turned 34 Today
A Nashville woman killed on the morning of June 22 after a drunk driver struck her motorcycle on Highway 100 would have turned age 34 today. Sherri A. Glover of Nashville was described by her father, Stephen Glover, as a bright, confident and outgoing woman with limitless potential. “Everyone enjoyed her personality,” he said. “She had a positive impact on a lot of people.”

Sherri Glover was -- among many things -- an accomplished motorcyclist. In 1996, she was certified as a motorcycle rider instructor by the state of Tennessee and taught safety classes to more than 100 people at Nashville State Tech as part of the Tennessee Rider Instruction Program.

Glover, who recieved her MBA from Belmont University, also was an active member of the Nashville Area Junior Chmber of Commerce. She modeled professionally at one point, posing for Castner Knott and Seventeen Magazine.

However, Glover was killed in June in a collision with a man police said was a drunk driver. Glover was riding her Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle westbound on Highway 100 when she was struck near the Spencer Mill Road Intersection by a 1992 Chevy pickup driven by Jimmy L. Nall, 46, of Fairview. The pickup, headed eastbound, crossed the center line and hit Glover head-on, state troopers said. She was wearing a helmet but died on the scene.

Stephen Glover said the loss of his daughter was a great tragedy for his wife, Yuko, and himself. "She was our only daighter," se said. "We devoted our lives to her."

Nall was not wearing a seat belt, and his blood alcohol content was 0.36 percent, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation crime lab reported. Currently, the legal limit is 0.08 percent, but the limit then was 0.10.

Nall was indicted by a grand jury last Monday on one count of vehicular homicide by DUI, as well as one count of vehicular homicide by recklessness. He is scheduled for an Aug. 25 arraignment in Williamson County Circuit Court and remains in jail in lieu of posting a $250,000 bond.

Court records show Nall had two prior DUI convictions -- in 1994 and 1998 -- Davidson County.
