WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Tenn. -

The Tennessee Highway Patrol is investigating a multi-vehicle crash that occurred late Saturday afternoon.

The accident occurred just before 6 p.m. on Highway 96 near the intersection of Maple Lane in Williamson County.

According to reports, 14 people and three vehicles were involved in the accident.

Police stated that 32-year-old Bethany Buckner was driving a Kia Optima eastbound on Highway 96 when she slowed down in her lane due to other vehicles turning left onto Maple Lane.

A Buick Minivan driven by 47-year-old Darren White rear-ended Buckner's vehicle.

Another adult, seven females between the ages of 16 and 17 and two children were also inside the van at the time of the accident. Police stated that 11 people were inside the seven-passenger vehicle.

After rear-ending Buckner's car, the van traveled into the westbound lane where it was hit head-on by 59-year-old Sammy Duke's Camero. Also in the car with Duke was his 58-year-old wife.

Thirteen of the 14 people involved in the accident were taken to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Five ambulances and two LifeFlight helicopters were called in to transport the victims.

Police charged White, the driver of the van, with failure to maintain right lane, two counts of child restraint, driving without insurance, no seat belts and driving on a suspended license because only one of the 11 people inside the van was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident.

The victims' conditions were not immediately released.
