A 45-year-old man was reported killed in the aftermath of his car hitting the back of the tractor-trailer. The tractor-trailer crash on I-24, South Nashville, happened on Thursday, May 6.

The collision reportedly took place after midnight in the eastbound lanes of I-24 at I-440. 

The officers said the tractor-trailer had slowed down because of the construction work at the Interstate, and that is when he was hit from behind by a 2010 Volkswagen Jetta.

The police also informed that the driver was not wearing a seatbelt while driving. The cause of the tractor-trailer crash on I-24 is under investigation. 

Due to the accident, all the eastbound lanes were closed for more than three hours and were reopened at around 3:30 am. Even in the late hours, the traffic was a bit affected due to the accident and investigation underway. 

Another accident was reported a day earlier in Clarksville. According to the reports, this was again a car crash on Peachers Mill Road and Tiny Town Road, and a woman was killed in the aftermath. 

The police said the woman is identified as a 21-year-old Kaitlyn Harris. Two other people were also reported to be injured in the accident. There is not much news on the injuries of the wounded, but the injuries weren’t looking life-threatening at the time of the scene. 

The investigation is under process, and charges were expected to be levied on responsible parties. A fatal crash investigator was immediately assigned to the case to reveal more concrete data. There was no other data revealed. At the time of writing, the story was still developing.
