CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -
There are conflicting accounts about an accident which occurred on Riverside Side around 12:15 p.m. Saturday.
Police say according to witnesses, a 2008 Dodge Charger driven by Jackie Rice, 57, of Clarksville, was traveling north on Riverside Drive.

Rice's vehicle continued onward in the left southbound lane crashing head on into a 2008 Ford F-150 driven by Ethan Cannon, 22 of Nunnelly, Tennessee.
A 2006 Pontiac G6, driven by Stephan Daniels, 27 was behind Cannon's Ford F-150 and after the abrupt stop of the pickup, rear ended it.
Ms. Rice's account was different.

There was no damage visible to the rear end of Ms Rice's car.
There were multiple non-life threatening injuries sustained in the crash.
