Tennessee Pileup, A chain-reaction traffic crash on a fogbound Nashville-area highway has involved nearly four dozen vehicles. Police report numerous injuries and at least one fatality.
At least one tractor-trailer was involved, but the driver was not injured.
The pileup occurred after sunrise Thursday on Vietnam Veterans Parkway in Hendersonville, just northeast of Nashville.
The limited-access highway is also known as State Route 386. The highway connects Interstate 65 with the cities of Hendersonville and Gallatin in Sumner County.
The fog around Old Hickory Lake was so bad that Hendersonville resident Erin Standefer barely got out of her driveway this morning.
“I couldn’t tell who was coming,” she said. “I pulled out of my driveway and got honked out. There were just cars everywhere.”
The wreck on Vietnam Veterans wreaked havoc on her morning.
It took her 45 minutes to get her son to school at Jack Anderson Elementary. It normally takes her two.
The accident began shortly before 7 a.m. in the eastbound lanes of the parkway, which was covered by heavy fog and had reported icy patches from freezing fog.
