Nashville Police are looking for a suspect who is believed to have been involved in two accidents, a multi-vehicle crash, and a hit-and-run accident. According to Nashville Police, a five-vehicle crash was caused by a suspect along Harding Place at Antioch Pike Thursday night just minutes after the suspect struck a pedestrian.
Nashville Police have pieced together the chain of events that have left several innocent people seriously injured. Around 9 p.m. on Thursday night a pedestrian was struck near Antioch Pike. Witnesses say the car fled the scene of the accident. Minutes later, the same vehicle traveling on Antioch Pike ran a red light at Harding Place and crashed into a tractor-trailer that had the right of way. This collision caused a chain reaction, and three other cars crashed. The suspect was the driver of the car, and he ran from the scene leaving two passengers inside who were injured. These two passengers and two other people involved in the multiple-vehicle accident were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Police say the victims were treated for injuries range from serious to minor.
Police say crews from multiple agencies were called to the scene and the intersection was shut down for hours. Hazmat crews were also called to the crash scene for the possible leaking of fuel. The condition of the pedestrian has not been released. The accident is still under investigation and police are searching for the suspect. Nashville Police are asking anyone with information about the accident to call the station.
