Several people were injured after a car collided with a flatbed semi-truck carrying lumber on State Route 840 Thursday morning, which then caused a secondary accident nearby.
Officials told News 2 the car suffered a blown tire, causing it to strike the semi near mile marker 61, just past Smyrna near the Rutherford-Wilson county line.
The car suffered extensive damage and the semi overturned upon impact, spilling large lumber on the side of the roadway.
Two people from the car were transported to a nearby hospital. An update on their conditions wasn't known.
The driver of the semi was able to get out of his truck and walk away. He suffered minor injuries but was transported to the hospital as a precaution.
After the initial crash, one car rear-ended another in the traffic backup. Two people were injured in that crash.
The scenes have since been cleared and traffic on State Route 840 is moving again.
