North Nashville crash injures seven

At least seven people were injured after a bizarre evening ended with a severe car accident. The crash happened at the intersection of Westchester and Devonshire Drive in North Nashville around 7:15 p.m. last night. Authorities say that a white Toyota Camry flew off of Devonshire and hit a SUV that was driving on Westchester. The Camry had caught the attention of authorities earlier in the evening because it had taken off during a traffic stop.

The car accident injured the two adults and four children in the SVU as well as the driver of the Camry. Everyone was rushed to Vanderbilt Medical Center and witnesses at the scene said that the Camry driver had to be excised from his vehicle with the Jaws of Life. That driver reportedly has life-threatening injuries. The condition of the SVU passengers is unknown.

Pictures of the accident scene show the severe damage that the SVU sustained. The badly damaged SVU is swamped by emergency crews who are attempting to assist those inside and investigate exactly how the accident occurred.

There are many cases in which individuals with criminal records drive recklessly to avoid police officers and hit innocent drivers and pedestrians in the process. It is unclear why the driver of the Camry took off from the earlier traffic stop or whether that driver has a history of reckless driving. It is also unclear whether a personal injury lawsuit will be filed in connection with this crash to compensate those in the SVU for the injuries they have suffered.
