Police say a driver was seriously injured in a rollover crash in south Nashville on Monday morning.

Crews are working to clear the scene of the wreck on Thompson Lane near Briley Parkway and Interstate 24.

Emergency personnel had to extricate the driver from the vehicle, who was taken to the hospital and remains in serious condition.

The driver of the other vehicle involved in the crash, a black Toyota Tundra, allegedly fled the scene after the wreck.

Police said one of the vehicles struck a utility pole in the area, which has brought down some power lines.

The road is expected to remain closed for a while, which will cause issues for the morning commute.
