Six girls were killed in a tragic car crash early Sunday morning on a freeway in Tennessee.
Authorities say eight people – a man, a woman, and six children – were in a red Toyota Camry traveling near exit 24 on I-24 West in Robertson County, Tennessee. Around 2 a.m., the car allegedly veered off the road and flipped onto the shoulder.
The six girls and the woman were ejected from the car as it rolled. Emergency responders said the Camry was found upside down with “very extensive damage.”
A pickup truck was near the crash site, the vehicle slammed into a concrete barrier. Officials aren’t yet certain if the two vehicles affected each other or if the pickup truck driver reacted to the Camry crashing by accidentally hitting the barrier.
The driver of the pickup truck was able to walk away from the car accident.
The woman was airlifted to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville and the man was rushed to the Skyline Medical Center in Nashville. The woman is in critical condition and the man suffered minor injuries, according to officials.
