Driver snaps three power poles in Gallatin Pike car accident
Posted By Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge || May 13, 2011
Two people were injured early Wednesday morning when a speeding driver crashed through three power poles along Gallatin Pike in the Inglewood area. The car accident happened around 3:30 a.m. on May 11 near the Inglewood library just south of Briley Parkway.
Nashville Metro Police estimate that the female driver was traveling in excess of 70 miles per hour when she crashed through the first power pole. She struck a total of three poles, snapping each of them in half, before lurching down an embankment and crashing into a wooded area.
The woman and her passenger were both seriously injured in the car accident and were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Police described their injuries as non-life-threatening.
At the time of the news report it was not yet known whether alcohol was a factor in the crash, but WKRN-TV 2 reports that police have ordered blood-alcohol tests in the case.
Gallatin Pike was shut down for several hours on Wednesday morning as a result of the car wreck. The southbound lanes were reopened around 6:00 a.m., but the northbound lanes could not be reopened until Nashville Electric crews could repair the broken power poles and restore electricity to the area.
Metro Police had not determined whether the driver would face any criminal or traffic charges, as their investigation of the car accident was not yet complete.
