Former LIZZY BORDEN Guitarist Killed In Car Crash

Former LIZZY BORDEN guitarist Corey Daum (a.k.a. Corey James) was killed in a car crash on Saturday morning (January 24) in Nashville, Tennessee. He was 39 years old. According to The Tennessean, a Kentucky man has been charged with vehicular homicide after police said he drove into a concrete wall, killing Daum.

Daum died at the scene of the accident on an Interstate 40 on-ramp on George L. Davis Boulevard. According to police, the car was driven by an Owensboro, Kentucky man, who admitted at the scene that he had been drinking.

The Ford Explorer driven by the Kentucky man crossed three lanes to get to the interstate on-ramp before striking a concrete wall about 12:30 a.m., witnesses told police.

The Kentucky man is also charged with vehicular assault for the injuries of another passenger, Ravin Wells, 27, of Goodlettsville, who is in stable condition at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

The Kentucky driver was not seriously injured, police said. None of the passengers were wearing seatbelts.

Daum was a member of LIZZY BORDEN from 1989 to 1996, although he apparently didn't appear on any of the band's studio albums.

Another former LIZZY BORDEN guitarist, Alex Nelson, was killed in a head-on collision on May 17, 2004.
