NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – First responders worked to free a driver after his SUV crashed into the front of a home early Wednesday morning in South Nashville.

It happened around 3:15 a.m. in the 4700 block of Reischa Sue Drive off Paragon Mills Road.

The driver of the SUV reportedly lost control after he was struck from behind and crashed into the front porch of the home.

He was trapped inside the vehicle for nearly an hour while firefighters worked to remove him from the SUV.

Firefighters used a saw to cut the door off the hinges and then pried the door open to free the victim.

The driver was alert and speaking with rescue crews throughout the rescue. He sustained minor injuries and was taken to an area hospital for treatment.

The homeowner told News 2 he both heard and felt the collision from inside the home.

Video surveillance from the home shows the SUV traveling onto the lawn and into the porch.

No additional information was immediately released.
