Two crashes occurred on Interstate 65 north of Nashville during the early morning hours Tuesday.
The first involved two officers whose police cruiser was rear-ended by another car around 1 a.m. in the southbound lanes of I-65 not far from Briley Parkway.
The second car then slid backward into a semi-truck.
No injuries were reported. The officers were taken to the hospital as a precaution. A secondary accident occurred around 200 yards from the first. At least two people were injured in that crash. Details surrounding the accident and injuries were not immediately known. Most lanes of traffic closed until 2:30 a.m. as crews worked to clear the scene.
