NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) –
Murfreesboro Road is closed at the intersection with Edge O Lake Drive after a car ran wrecked into two light poles, causing the street lights to crash into the street.
Police estimated that the road would be closed for at least five to six hours. Right now, traffic is being diverted in a parking lot, but heavy backups can be expected as morning commute traffic increases.
One 20 year old male was injured in the single vehicle crash. He was heading south on Murfreesboro road when the crash occurred. His injuries are not serious.
Police say they do not know at this time what led to the car exiting the road. The driver was the only one in the car.
