Police have charged a man with vehicular homicide by intoxication in a crash that killed a Nashville motorist Saturday.

The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department reports 31-year-old Elvin Portillo was driving a truck that lost control on Interstate 24 and struck a concrete barrier. Fifty-seven-year-old Bobby Douglas swerved to avoid a collision, but struck a guardrail and a pole before catching fire. Douglas died at the scene.

Portillo and a passenger tried to flee on foot but were apprehended by witnesses. In addition to the homicide charge, Portillo was also charged with leaving the scene of a crash, failure to render aid, driving on a revoked license and not having proof of insurance. Portillo is being held on $175,000 bond in the Davidson County Hill Detention Center.
