CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Four people were injured when a car slammed into a retaining wall near Governor’s Square Mall in Clarksville.

First responders arrived at the scene shortly after 11 a.m. Sunday.

According to Clarksville city officials, a silver Hyundai Sonata left the roadway near the mall and slammed into a retaining wall at what police are calling a significant rate of speed.

“This is one of the most dramatic impacts I’ve ever seen,” said Patrol Officer Coz Minetos, who responded to the scene.
