GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. -

Emergency crews are responded to several wrecks reported around Davidson and several Middle Tennessee counties Friday morning due to wintry weather conditions.

According to the Clarksville Police Department, several accidents were reported along Interstate 24 between mile markers three and 11.

One of the most serious accidents, involving a 32-year-old pregnant woman, occurred around 7:15 a.m.

Authorities said the woman lost control of her 2004 Ford Explorer on an ice covered bridge near Exit 4.

The woman's SUV left the roadway onto the top of a guardrail and flipped several times before the vehicle came to a rest in a ditch.

The driver of the vehicle was partially ejected. She was transported to an area hospital before being transferred to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. She was last listed in stable condition.

Multiple accidents were also reported shortly before 7 a.m. near the 6400 block of Lickton Pike in Goodlettsville.

Approximately six vehicles went off the roadway along Lickton Pike. The roadway was reportedly covered with ice.

Sources in Goodlettsville told Nashville's News 2 conditions were getting worse along side roads and areas of high elevation around 8:30 a.m.

Multiple wrecks were also reported around 6:15 a.m. in the 4900 block of Bull Run Road near Old Hickory Boulevard in Davidson County, not too far from the Cheatham County line.

Three cars were reportedly involved in an accident on a hill and three other vehicles were also in a wreck at a nearby curve in the roadway.

No further details were immediately released.

A woman drove into a ditch after hitting a patch of black ice in Montgomery County.

The incident happened around 5:30 a.m. in the 4200 block of Trough Springs Road in Clarksville.

The woman was not injured.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office and fire department called a salt truck to come brine the road.

While they were waiting for her SUV to be towed, officials monitored passing traffic and urged drivers to drive slowly.

Just after 4 a.m. Friday, crews in Madison responded to a water main break at Gallatin Pike South and East Palestine Avenue.

Crews dug a hole to pump water out while they tried to fix the break.

Officials were worried water from the break would freeze over and cause further problems on the roadways.

One lane was shutdown for a few hours while crews worked to fix the break and it has since reopened.
