(Submitted to Fox 17 News)

Nolensville Police said an Arrington fire truck was involved in a deadly crash Thursday night.

Police Chief Troy Huffines said a woman was killed after an Arrington fire truck t-boned her vehicle, knocking it into a large construction vehicle in the area of Nolensville Road and York Road. The fire truck then hit a utility pole.

The family identified the woman killed to Fox 17 News as Nikki Walden, a mom of three from Smyrna.

The young woman was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.

Huffines said at the time of the crash, the fire truck was responding to a call in the area, but it was canceled. Details of the situation the fire truck was responding to were not released at this time. It's also unclear if the fire truck's emergency lights were on at the time of the crash.

A person in the fire truck was also transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Crews were on scene Friday reconstructing the crash. It's being investigated by Tennessee Highway Patrol.

The THP crash report is not being released at this time as the crash is still under investigation. THP is working with the District Attorney’s office in this case.

The Arrington Fire Department said they do not have a statement regarding the crash at this time.
