One year later, family still searching for answers after fatal high speed chase crash


GREENE COUNTY, TN (WJHL) – One year after a fatal crash in Greene County, the case is still working through the court system.

21-year-old Daniel Gross was killed in a wreck on highway 107 in Greene County in January 2015.

Police charged the driver Jason Mistele with vehicular homicide.Daniel’s father, Christopher Chamberlain shared with us a video of his son playing guitar on the beach during a family trip.

He was very creative, and he loved to make music. he played guitar and piano and he was always making music and he was always talking about music with me,” Chamberlain said.

It was Christmas 2014 when Christopher last saw his son, Daniel alive.

“It was a good time, we were together on Christmas Eve, and had dinner and actually took this picture here, it was the last time i got to see him and we really miss him,” Chamberlain said.

Daniel was the passenger in then 22-year-old Jason Mistele’s car during a high speed chase with a Greene county sheriff’s deputy on highway 107. Court documents show that the chase started because Mistele was driving erratically.

The case was handed over to the Tennessee Highway Patrol. At last check the investigation was still on going and it was determined that alcohol may have been a factor and test result had not been completed.

News Channel 11 reached out to the district attorney’s office Wednesday and the prosecutor handling the case and got a statement that read, “The state is reviewing the facts it has before it and waiting for the investigation to be completed.”

Christopher Chamberlain and his wife, Daniel’s mother both desperately want closure and justice for their son. For now, they are reflecting on the love they all shared and the many memories that live on in their hearts.Copyright 2016 WJHL.  All rights reserved.
