Neither alcohol nor drugs were a factor in a pre-dawn collision on Friday that killed a 32-year-old Bon Aqua woman on Highway 96 at Little East Fork Road.

Metro Nashville Police investigated the crash, which was about a half mile north of the Davidson-Williamson County line.

According to Metro Nashville Police spokesman Don Aaron, the woman killed in the crash was positively identified as Julie Burgin, 32, of Bon Aqua, Tennessee.

According to Aaron, the investigation shows that Burgin was driving a 2009 Hyundai Accent northwest on Highway 96 at 4:20 a.m. when, for reasons undetermined, the car crossed over the double yellow line and collided with an oncoming 2017 Toyota Rav4 SUV. The Hyundai rolled over and caught fire. Burgin died at the scene.

The driver of the Toyota, Ashley Lewis, 26, of Fairview, was seriously injured and was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment.

There was no indication of alcohol or drug involvement at the scene.  Both drivers were wearing seatbelts.
