A tow truck was rear-ended overnight while en-route to a weather-related crash in Nashville.

The incident happened shortly before 1:30 a.m. Tuesday on Interstate 65 at the Vietnam Veterans ramp.

The initial crash involved a car that hydroplaned. While the tow-truck driver was responding, he was rear-ended by another car.

Officials had to close the ramp while they cleared the rear-end crash.

No one was hurt.

Ponding on roadways could be a problem throughout  the morning commute as rain moves through the area.
