5 Car, 2 Tractor Trailer Pile Up Closes I-24

NASHVILLE, Tenn. ­­- Traffic was at a complete standstill before Interstate 24 reopened Wednesday morning. Police closed I-24 from Bell Road to Harding Place.

Police said the crash involved tractor trailers and five other vehicles, but it was just one driver who caused the whole wreck.

"An 18-wheeler was traveling eastbound on I-24. Another car cut in front of him causing him to have to slow up quickly. Another 18 wheeler that was behind him, ran into the back of him causing a chain reaction with five other vehicles behind his vehicle," Sergeant Ralph Griggers said.

Emergency officials took two people to the hospital, but officers said they are expected to be okay.
