Traffic was slow moving in north Clarksville following an accident on Purple Heart Parkway Wednesday afternoon.

The eastbound traffic was closed and westbound traffic was down to one lane. They have both since reopened.

Officials told News 2 a Jeep Wrangler that had a green light collided with the Kia hatchback as it was making a U-turn.

The Jeep rolled over and the Kia was pushed across the westbound lanes and down a small ravine.

Both men were taken by ambulance to an area hospital, but are expected to be okay.

Police said charges are likely, but it is unclear against who.
