NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A three-vehicle wreck left two people injured and closed the Hobson Pike bridge for over two hours early Thursday morning.

The crash happened around 5:30 a.m. on the bridge over Percy Priest Lake when a Cadillac driven by an elderly woman accidentally crossed the center line.

The Cadillac hit a pickup truck head-on before colliding a second vehicle, a white sedan.

It then traveled another 100 yards farther down the bridge before coming to rest against the side wall.

Emergency crews had to extricate the woman from her vehicle.  She was transported to TriStar Summit Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the pickup truck was also transported with minor injuries.

Police told News 2 the woman in the Cadillac may have suffered a medical condition causing her to veer into oncoming traffic.

The bridge reopened around 7:50 a.m.
