NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Metro Police arrested three suspects after a cross-county pursuit ended in a crash.

The chase continued onto Old Hickory Boulevard and Gallatin Pike, where Metro police deployed spike strips. A Metro police officer was hurt when one of the spike strips hit his hand.

The driver crashed and police took them into custody. One of them had to be treated for injuries.
