NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A driver is dead after an early morning crash on 8th Avenue South in South Nashville.

An SUV collided with a building near Douglas Avenue just after 5 a.m. Saturday.

Metro police tell Channel 4 News Christopher Sexton, 31, of Glen Echo Road, was killed.  

Investigators said his passenger, Beth Robertson, 33, of Glen Echo Road, was critically injured and rushed to Vanderbilt for treatment.

Police said Sexton was driving a 1999 Toyota 4-Runner south on 8th Avenue when the vehicle left the roadway and collided with the building.

Officers said Sexton was pronounced dead at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

There was no evidence of alcohol at the scene of the crash, investigators said.

It is not yet known why the 4-Runner left the roadway.

The building, which houses a custom furniture and decorating business, appeared to have structural damage.

The business was closed Saturday while crews inspected the damage. It was expected to reopen Monday, according to workers.
