A car crash on Interstate 24 in Tennessee early Sunday morning killed six people, including five children, and injured one woman.
According to a news release from Robertson County Emergency Medical Services, emergency medical services responded to a collision of two vehicles at the interstate’s westbound mile marker 23 in Robertson County.
“A total of four Advanced Life Support ambulances and one helicopter/air ambulance responded to this scene,” according to the release. “The first arriving units worked quickly to locate, assess, and triage the total of nine patients involved.”
According to the release, the driver of one of the vehicles involved in the accident was not injured.
“There was only one other vehicle involved.” “The vehicle was discovered upside down with extensive damage,” according to the release. “Another adult male was ambulatory on the scene and told responders he was in this car.” At the time, this man appeared to be stable with minor injuries.”
An adult female “believed to have been ejected from the car” was found in critical condition, according to the release. The woman was flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. Her current condition is unclear.
Six other people, including five children, were pronounced dead at the scene “due to injuries that could not be resuscitated,” according to the release. All six children, aged one to eighteen, are believed to have been ejected from the vehicle.
In a statement, the Tennessee Highway Patrol said it is investigating the crash and will release more information as it becomes available.
“Our office recognizes the scene’s incredible difficulty. “Further coordination has been established to include professional mental health and counseling services for responders,” Robertson County Emergency Medical Services said in a release. “Please keep the families and individuals involved in your prayers and thoughts.”
