WILLIAMSON COUNTY, TN (WSMV) - A Williamson County deputy and another man are recovering in the hospital after a two car crash on I-65 near Cool Springs Blvd. on Wednesday morning.

According to the THP preliminary report, a GMC Envoy driven by 28-year-old Nathaniel Chapuis from Franklin was traveling on I-65 south near mile marker 68 when he struck the back of a Dodge Durango police cruiser driven by 29-year-old Williamson County deputy Seth Obermeyer who was stopped in the lane in a construction zone.

THP says both patients involved in the crash have been transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in stable condition. Chapuis is charged with aggravated vehicular assault, driving on a revoked drivers license, no seatbelt, and open container. THP says alcohol and drugs played a factor in the crash.

According to TDOT SmartWay, the accident was reported around 1:50 a.m. and was expected to be clear around 6 a.m. The scene has since cleared.
