Four people were injured in a late-night crash after a driver allegedly fled a traffic stop in Nashville.

The incident happened before 10 p.m. Wednesday at the intersection of 17th Avenue South and Edgehill Avenue. 

Officers with Metro Nashville Police said they tried to pull over a car that had a tail light out, but the driver kept going.

That person eventually t-boned an SUV, injuring four people.

One person from the SUV was taken to an area hospital but police said he or she was not badly hurt. Three people from the car were also taken to the hospital, one of whom suffered serious injuries.

At one point, the fatal crash team was called out to the scene to investigate.

The driver who allegedly fled police was not being cooperative. Police said drugs were found in the car.

Officers arrested him during transport to the hospital. His name was not released.

Charges have yet to be filed in the case.
