A portion of a busy south Nashville roadway is shutdown after two early morning accidents Monday.

The first accident occurred just after 12 a.m., Midnight at the corner of Fairfield Avenue at Robertson Street.

A car crashed into a pole and hit a gas line.

The roadway was shutdown for a few hours while crews cleared the wreck. Piedmont Gas shut off gas in the area while they work to repair the line.

Piedmont Gas told Nashville's News 2 no customers lost service as a result of the crash.

They expect to have repairs completed later Monday or Tuesday.

No one was injured.

Over three hours after that crash and shortly after the roadway reopened, another driver crashed in the area.

That incident occurred around 3:30 a.m. on Hermitage Avenue near Fairfield Avenue.

Officials told Nashville's News 2 the driver lost control of her red Saturn and crashed into a utility pole, knocking it over onto phone wires.

AT&T was called to the scene to make repairs.

Both airbags deployed and a wheel fell off the Saturn as a result of the crash.

Hermitage Avenue is closed from Fairfield Avenue to Decatur Street.

It is not immediately clear when the roadway will reopen.
