NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Three people were injured, one critically, in a wrong-way crash that closed Murfreesboro Road near Nashboro Village early Wednesday morning.

It happened near the Shumate Lane intersection after Una Antioch Pike just after midnight.

Metro police told News 2 a wrong-way driver was traveling inbound in the outbound lanes when another driver swerved to avoid the vehicle.

The cars reportedly brushed against each other before the wrong-way driver then hit a second vehicle head-on.

The wrong-way driver, who has not been identified, was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

The two other drivers were taken to TriStar Summit Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Murfreesboro Road reopened around 4:40 a.m. after the Metro police fatal team investigated.
