NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A Belle Meade police officer was treated at the hospital and released after crashing the chief of police's car early Thursday morning.

The accident was reported just after 5 a.m. along Harding Pike at Jackson Boulevard in Belle Meade, just west of downtown.

According to police, Officer Kwame Thomas was traveling outbound on Harding Pike when, for reasons unknown, he left the roadway and hit a large metal electric pole.

One power line landed across his unmarked police car.

Officer Thomas was able to radio that he was involved in a crash.

Responding officers found him still inside the car and said they were able to retrieve him from the car.

The car Officer Thomas was driving belonged to the Belle Meade chief of police.  He was driving the chief's car while his new car was being worked on.

At one point, the Nashville Electric Service reported 1,000 people in the area without power.

The power pole has since been replaced and power restored to residents.

Additional information was not released.
