NASHVILLE, TN – Police said two people died following an incident that involved a crash and a shooting in Nashville early Tuesday morning, the Tennessean reported.

Officials said a Ford F-150 pickup truck collided with the side of a tractor-trailer on Interstate 24 near Shelby Avenue at about 3:15 a.m. The shooting took place inside the pickup, which was reported stolen last week from outside a home on Cain Harbor Drive in South Nashville.
