A car overturned Thursday morning after colliding with a lawn mowing company’s trailer parked on the side of a south Nashville road.

The collision happened around 6:40 a.m. on Tusculum Road near Ocala Drive, west of Blue Hole Road.

Metro police officers on the scene told News 2 the driver of the car crashed into the back of the trailer, sending a lawn mower on the trailer into the air.

The driver told police he took his eyes off to adjust the air conditioning and didn’t see the trailer.

The impact caused the car to overturn.

No one was seriously injured.

A worker was nearly struck by the flying lawnmower but was able to jump out of the way.

Tusculum Road was closed for about an hour while crews cleared the scene.
