Police Search for Man Charged in Fatal Crash

Traffic investigators are seeking Nicolas Abdul-Wali for vehicular homicide.

Traffic Unit investigators are working to locate Nicolas Abdul-Wali, 27, for an outstanding vehicular homicide warrant related to the November 20 fatal crash that claimed the life of Miguel Sanchez Lara, 60, on Murfreesboro Pike at Dover Glen Drive.

Abdul-Wali was arrested the morning of the crash on charges of driving on a suspended license and failure to provide proof of insurance. The continuing investigation showed just prior to the crash, he was driving his Dodge Journey in excess of 70 miles per hour when he struck Lara pulling out of an apartment complex in a Nissan Sentra.

Lara was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he died on November 29.

A vehicular homicide by reckless conduct warrant was obtained against Abdul-Wali last week. He was given an opportunity to surrender himself but has yet to do so.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
