Two people were killed in an early morning wreck on Royal Drive in Mt. Juliet on Saturday. 

A report filed by Trooper Tracy White of the Tennessee Highway Patrol said Ronnie T. Butler, 37, of Cedar Creek Drive, and Reshardo J. Clemmons, 35, of Elise Drive, both in Mt. Juliet, were killed when the car, a 1998, four-door Oldsmobile Aurora, driven by Butler was traveling eastbound at 5:43 a.m. on Royal Drive, went off the side of the roadway, collided with two mailboxes, crossed two private drives and became airborne. 

The car collided with a culvert and rolled over and came to a final rest on its wheels in a private drive. 

White said in the report that alcohol was believed to have been a contributing factor in the accident. Blood alcohol tests were to be done as is standard in accidents where fatalities occur.

Butler was not wearing his seatbelt, but Clemmons was at the time of the accident. White said in the report that safety restraints would have made a difference in the wreck.
