Savannah Chrisley’s ex-fiancé Nic Kerdiles died from his injuries in a motorcycle accident early Saturday morning, according to WRKN News 2.

The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department reportedly told the Nashville station that Kerdiles, 29, ran through a stop sign in a residential area north of the Tennessee capital while on his Indian Motorcycle at around 3:30 a.m.

According to the outlet, police said Kerdiles hit the driver's side of the BMW, who did not seem to be injured from the crash, but Kerdiles was taken to a nearby hospital where he later died.


Chrisley’s rep did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment, and a rep for the MNPD and Kerdiles could not be reached.

On Friday night, Kerdiles shared a photo of himself with his helmet on riding his motorcycle. He wrote below the vehicle on his Instagram Story, “Night rider.”

Earlier this month, the former professional hockey player — who played for the Anaheim Ducks from 2014 to 2017 before being drafted by the Winnipeg Jets in 2018 — reflected on making the most of every day in an Instagram series of photos from time spent with his family back home.

“Time in this life goes by quicker and quicker each day. I will never again take these days with them for granted and my advice is the same for everyone else,” he wrote in the caption.

Kerdiles was previously engaged to Chrisley, 26, after they began dating in November 2017.

In July 2020, Savannah shared with PEOPLE that the engagement and wedding was off. She explained of her and Kerdiles' decision: "Nic and I have been together for two and a half years. We're just trying to find our place in this world."

"We're working on ourselves in order to be better for each other. I like to say our relationship is unique and we're kind of marching to our own beat," she said.

While the reality star said she and Kerdiles were still together, she felt they "rushed into things way too fast" and now "want to make sure we're both in a healthy place."

In September, Chrisley shared in an Instagram post that the couple had "decided to call it quits."

The Unlocked podcast host wrote at the time, "There's no hatred between the two of us...and in all honesty...that makes saying goodbye even harder. We have nothing but love, respect, and admiration for one another but it's time for us to move forward individually.”
