NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The driver of the pickup truck that crashed into a home in Southeast Nashville in June 2021 now faces 45 charges following a grand jury indictment.
Metro police arrested 41-year-old Abdalla Arbo on Thursday and charged him with 32 counts of forgery and multiple violations of the carrier’s safety rules after Highway Patrol officials Tennessee Express and the Nashville Metro Police Department discovered tampered log books and unreported brake problems to Freightliner.
The charges come after an accident that occurred in June 2021 at the corner of Elm Hill Pike and Wanda Drive. Metro police said Abdalla Arbo was operating a tractor-trailer when a Honda Accord turned into the pickup’s aisle. Officials said Arbo tried to avoid a collision but crashed into a Honda, a Ford F-150 and a Ford Escape before crashing into the front yard and garage of a nearby home.
According to Metro police, Arbo and the other drivers involved were injured in the collision. In addition to the 32 counts, Abro also faces two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon due to reckless driving, and five counts of endangering a motor vehicle.
Arbo is being held at the Downtown Detention Center for $75,000.
