Nashville, Tennessee (WKRN) —Metro police responded to at least three collisions along Central Tennessee Road early Monday morning. This all happened on Bell Road, causing delays, lane closures and injuries.
Hundreds of drivers go to Bell Road every day, but crashes occur so often that neighbors living along the street often see them.
“Sad, that’s sad. Not surprisingly, but sad,” said Carrie Bruce, who has lived away from Bell Road for the past 20 years. Unfortunately, Bruce told News 2 he wasn’t shocked when he heard about repeated collisions on the street.
“I hear a lot of sirens, speed violations, illegal passages, bumpers from shipwrecks along the road,” Bruce said, explaining just a few of the problems she’s consistently seeing and hearing. ..
Bruce explained that Bell Road spans different areas, which can be a hotspot for speeders, and sometimes even criminals want a quick escape.
News 2 reported three incidents at Bell Road early Monday morning.
- Bell Road 1400 block: Hit and run, two victims expected to be okay
- Bell Road in Brittany Park: After the driver turns, the vehicle enters the ditch and the driver is expected to be okay
- Bell Road, Blue Hole Road: No collisions, no injuries, including school buses
According to the latest data from Metro Police, the intersection of Bell Road and Murfreesboro Road was ranked number one in the county for an intact collision.
“What we are doing is monitoring traffic, monitoring those crashes, examining the data, seeing what is happening, and making sure it is in line with the enforcement efforts.

Repeated incidents in a region are nothing new to local and state law enforcement agencies. This is being carefully monitored by the Tennessee Highway Patrol to provide safe roads throughout central Tennessee.
One of the most dangerous trends they investigate is the driver involved in hit-and-run, especially when pedestrians and cyclists are involved.
“The minutes can lead to how well you recover, and the minutes can actually save your life. Escaping from the scene will make the result much worse. Escaping will result. Will be much worse, “explained Lieutenant Miller.
That’s why law enforcement officers are encouraging drivers to play their part and focus more on the road. With summer approaching, THP officials expect more drivers to be on the road for vacations and special occasions. The biggest tip they share is to focus on driving safely, using your cell phone and not distracting the driver.
