Metro police reported the crash happened when a 2001 BMW Z3 side-swiped a Dodge Ram tow truck. The driver of the BMW died, but no other injuries were reported.
The roadway was closed while crash investigators processed the scene. It has since reopened to traffic.
Police say the preliminary investigation revealed the BMW attempted to pass the tow truck along the right shoulder at a high rate of speed. It then struck the tow truck’s passenger side and rolled over on the shoulder. The Dodge then struck a Honda Ridgeline in front of it, which rear-ended a Nissan Maxima.
The tow truck eventually moved to the left side of the roadway and struck the front of a Toyota Highlander.
The BMW driver was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. The medical examiner’s office is currently working to positively identify the man, but Metro police said he was 37 years old.
There were no signs of impairment at the scene with any of the drivers, according to Metro police.
