CODE RED: Truck flips into Nashville creek, driver OK

(FOX 17 News)

A truck flipped into a Nashville creek Thursday morning as drivers had to deal with icy conditions.

The vehicle flipped into a creek along Grizzard Avenue at about 6:50 a.m. The driver is OK.

FOX 17 News is in a Code Red Traffic Alert for icy conditions.

Drivers had to deal with some patches of ice through the morning commute. The entrance ramp to Murfreesboro Road to the I-24/I-40 junction was closed for a short time due to ice.

That road has since been reopened as a Metro Police officer said the ice had turned to slush and deemed it safe for drivers.
