An early morning wreck on Madison Street in Clarksville claimed the life of a man and injured several other people.
The wreck reportedly occurred in front of 15-17 Madison Street and was reported to
9-1-1 dispatchers around 7:40 a.m.
According to Clarksville Police Public Information Officer Jim Knoll the fatal wreck involved two vehicles; a dark colored Durango and a red Chevy.
Knoll says the Durango was traveling eastbound and for an unknown reason, crossed into the center line and crashed head-on into the path of the Chevy, which was traveling westbound.
Officer Knoll also stated two other people were life-flighted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center and another person was sent by ambulance to Gateway Medical Center for treatment of their injuries.
As a result of the wreck, Madison Street was closed down from Liberty Parkway to Crossland Avenue while the police department’s fatal accident crash team investigated the wreck.
Police say its too early into the investigation to say whether or not alcohol played a factor in the fatal wreck.
The man's name has not been released, pending family notification and no further information was provided.
