MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WKRN) – Two men were arrested after a multi-county police chase ended in a crash involving seven vehicles at a busy Murfreesboro intersection Tuesday morning.

Williamson County deputies began chasing a Penske rental truck suspected of being involved in a burglary at Spring Meadow Baptist Church on Columbia Pike at 6:45 a.m.

The pursuit crossed into Rutherford County where the truck crashed at the Fortress Boulevard exit off Interstate 24 just after 7 a.m.

Authorities say the truck crashed into seven other vehicles, one of which was flipped in the crash and at least one person had to be pulled out of their car by emergency personnel.

Two men reportedly ran from the truck, but both were quickly captured by deputies from both Williamson and Rutherford counties.

The men, identified as Christopher Bohrer and Derrick White, both of Nashville, will be charged in Williamson County.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol is taking over the investigation of the crash.
