WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — One person has died after an apparent hit-and-run crash on the interstate in Williamson County late Monday night.
The fatal collision was reported just before midnight on I-65 southbound at the Peytonsville Road exit, which is mile marker 61.
According to preliminary findings by Tennessee Highway Patrol, an unknown silver SUV struck a Hyundai Veracruz, causing the Veracruz to collide with a Chevrolet Impala. The Impala was then t-boned by a Toyota Sequoia, as the driver of the silver SUV fled the scene, troopers said.
Four people in the remaining three vehicles involved were transported to an area hospital for treatment of unknown injuries, investigators explained. Troopers said Kathryn Nappier, a 38-year-old passenger in the Impala, was pronounced dead at the hospital.
The entire southbound portion of the interstate was shut down in the area for several hours, as an investigation was conducted. The road reopened to traffic around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Anyone with information on the hit-and-run vehicle is urged to contact Tennessee Highway Patrol at 615-741-2060.
