GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) - A family of nine traveling down Springfield Highway was injured in a rollover crash Friday night, according to the Metro Nashville Police Department.

Officers responded to a crash at around 10:30 p.m. and discovered a Toyota Highlander upside down. A preliminary report shows the driver of the Toyota was traveling south on Springfield Highway when it was struck by another driver who allegedly ran a stop sign.

The crash sent the Toyota into a roll, ejecting several occupants until the vehicle stopped and landed upside down. The nine occupants inside were reportedly family members and were all injured in the crash. Two of the family members have life-threatening injuries, according to MNPD.

Police said the driver who ran the stop sign exited their vehicle and fled.

The investigation remains ongoing.
