2 children hurt in I-40 crash in Williamson County

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Two young children were hurt in a crash Friday evening along Interstate 40 in Williamson County.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol says the children, ages 5 and 10, were riding westbound in an RV driven by Steven Butler, 64, of Mt. Juliet, when a tractor trailer on the shoulder of the interstate near mile marker 182 collided into the RV.

THP investigators believe the tractor trailer was pulled over on the shoulder as the driver, Douglas Brown, 58, of Louisville, KY, was programming the GPS in his vehicle.

Brown apparently did not set the parking brake, THP said, and the truck rolled back into the traffic lane of I-40, colliding with the RV.

Butler and another adult passenger were not hurt, and THP said the two injured children were properly restrained in the vehicle.

There is no word on the children's condition. They were taken to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital for treatment.

Brown was charged with failure to exercise due care.
