The driver was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

It is not immediately known what caused the driver to lose control of the SUV. The crash is under investigation.

No additional information was immediately released.

Velvet Travis, the owner of a Kia sedan which was crushed by the SUV, told News 2, “I’m mad, sad, but at the same time, I just can’t let it get to me because it could have been worse. I could have been in the car.”

Travis did not hear the crash happen overnight and woke up to find her car had been heavily damaged.

She told News 2 she has car insurance that would cover the cost of a rental car while her car is repaired.

Travis’ father, Robert Smith, said, “You know, accidents happen, and cars can be fixed or replaced, but I just hope the young lady that had this accident, we hope and pray, we hope that she [is] okay.”
