NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Crews rescued a pinned man from a car after a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 40 in Nashville.

The incident happened early Thursday morning near Spence Lane.

The cause of the crash was unclear. One of the vehicles struck the guardrail, pinning one person inside.

Sky 5 flew over the scene and showed that the guardrail actually went through the car.

Crews spent several minutes working to free the man. He seemed to be talking and moving the entire time.

The wreck snarled traffic for thousands of drivers, causing a miles-long backup on the interstate.
