WILSON COUTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — At least one person was killed in a multiple vehicle crash in Wilson County Wednesday morning.
The crash happened around 9:30 a.m. at the intersection of Lebanon Road and Matterhorn Drive near the Davidson County line.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol says 40-yeear-old Paula Rush was driving a 2002 Nissan Altima westbound on Highway 70 when she side swiped a 2018 Hyundai Sonata that was stopped in a turning lane eastbound on Highway 70.
After the impact, the Altima continued westbound on Highway 70, crossed the turning lane and entered the eastbound lane of travel, crashing head on into a 2017 Ram 1500 before also hitting a 2011 Toyota Camry.
Rush was killed in the crash while the drivers of the Ram and Camry were both injured. The driver of the Sonata was not injured.
“There was just a really loud noise, it sounded like an explosion. . .That’s when myself and my associate went out there and tried to assist anyone in the accident,” Henry Baskin, who witnessed the crash, said.
Lebanon Road reopened to traffic shortly after noon.
