WGNS has an update to an accident that was reported on Thursday morning in Christiana.
The driver of a Dodge sedan was coming from the Murfreesboro area and traveling towards Shelbyville on 231 South when he rear-ended a semi-truck around 8:30 in the morning. The crash occurred near Rock Springs Midland Road.
A report filed by the Tennessee Highway Patrol showed the driver of the small sedan told troopers he briefly looked down to hang up a phone call when he inadvertently changed lanes. It was during that misguided lane change that resulted in a collision with the rear-end of a Kenworth semi-truck.
While the driver of the sedan was not critically injured, he was indeed injured. His passenger also sustained non-life threatening injuries in the accident on Thursday.
The rear-end collision that occurred on Thursday morning appeared to have been caused by a driver ending a call on his phone, according to a THP report.
