Police suspect alcohol may have been a factor in a crash Tuesday morning in south Nashville.

A driver slid into a median on Murfreesboro Pike around Midnight near the Nashville International Airport.

The vehicle kept travelling into a utility pole, causing the traffic lights to droop over the roadway.

The driver suffered minor injuries, but was not transported to the hospital.

Police stated they suspect the driver may have been drinking, as they found at least one open container of alcohol inside the vehicle.

Crews said it could take several hours to repair the utility pole.

One inbound lane of Murfreesboro Road was closed as officials remained on the scene.
