One person was flown via LifeFlight to the hospital following a two-vehicle crash on Bridgestone Parkway early Wednesday morning in La Vergne.
The tractor-trailer was headed eastbound at 7 a.m. when the driver allegedly left the roadway and overcorrected, flipping one of the trailers and crashing into another tractor-trailer, the City of La Vergne said in a press release. The driver of the other vehicle was pinned and had to be extricated by the La Vergne Fire Rescue Department. The extrication took 45 minutes.
The victim was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with serious injuries, the city said. An update on the victim’s condition was not available.
Bridgestone Parkway was expected to be closed for several hours while crews work to offload the flipped trailer and get the wreckage towed away.
