NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Jefferson Street has been closed just east of the intersection with Rosa Parks Boulevard after a crash involving five vehicles.

The crash happened around 3:45 p.m. Tuesday.

Officials said a silver Dodge Ram was driving eastbound on Jefferson Street when it somehow ended up in the westbound lanes. The pickup hit several cars before striking a westbound black Dodge Ram head on. 

Initials reports said one person was trapped. Three people were transported to the hospital. None of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening. 

Three of the vehicles had to be towed. Several sustained significant damage.

Both eastbound and westbound lanes were shut, with the crash and several emergency response vehicles blocking the roadway.

Both the Nashville Fire Department and Metro Nashville Police Department responded to the scene.

The roadway has since reopened.
