Williamson Co. Deputy, Two Others Injured In Crash On I-65S

Posted: Updated:

SPRING HILL, Tenn. – A Williamson County Sheriff's deputy, an out-of-state officer, and another driver were injured in a crash on Interstate 65 near Spring Hill on Monday morning.

The crash happened just after 9:20 a.m. in the southbound lanes at Saturn Parkway. Officials said the Williamson County Sheriff's deputy and an officer from Georgia were in an unmarked vehicle when a Lexus crossover attempting to switch lanes overcorrected and slammed into the car.

The Lexus flipped on its side. The officers were pinned inside the patrol car.

The Williamson County Sheriff's deputy, identified as Deputy Kevin Jones, was taken by LifeFlight to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, while the other officer and the driver of the Lexus were taken to Williamson County Medical Center. All were treated and released.

Teddy Howard witnessed the crash. He had just been pulled over and was sitting on the guard rail while the officers sat in their unmarked patrol car filling out paper work.

"The police car almost sandwiched me in I was able to maneuver myself from doing a little back flip and rolling down the hill," said Howard. 

The southbound lanes remained blocked until 11:30 a.m. while crews worked to clear the scene.

Deputy Jones was released from Vanderbilt Medical Center late Monday evening.  Officials said had he been outside the patrol car at the time of the wreck he could have been killed. 

The Tennessee Highway Patrol is investigating. They have not said if any citations were issued because of the crash.
