NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Heavy downpours are causing hazardous driving conditions across Middle Tennessee.

An SUV flipped over on Interstate 40 eastbound, at the Charlotte Pike off-ramp on Sunday afternoon.

Eastbound traffic was slow for more than an hour, while Metro Police and Fire cleared the scene.

In Mt. Juliet, high water covered Belinda Parkway for a few hours.

The water has receded and the road is back open.
