by Ponce Law | November 23rd, 2020

NASHVILLE, TN – Two people were killed and three others were injured in a multi-vehicle crash in south Nashville Friday night, according to Fox 17 Nashville.

A total of nine vehicles were involved in the wreck in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 24 near Antioch Pike just before 8 p.m.

Investigators said an Infiniti Q-50 was trying to avoid a Mazda re-entering traffic on the highway when the Infiniti driver struck an Acura. A semi-truck then hit the Infiniti, which crashed into a concrete wall and went up in flames. The two people in the burning car died at the scene, but their identities have not been released. Three other people were hospitalized with injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

The 17-year-old driver of the Mazda is facing charges for driving without a license and not having insurance and could face additional charges, police said.

All eastbound lanes and a westbound lane of I-24 were closed in the area while the scene was being cleared.
