A two-vehicle crash clogged up much of Interstate 40 near Mt. Juliet Wednesday afternoon during rush hour, but no injuries were reported, according to the Mt. Juliet Police Department.
MJPD Deputy Chief James Hambrick said the department received the call around 4:25 p.m. Wednesday. He said a pickup truck with a slide-on camper was rear-ended by a minivan, both traveling eastbound, just west of the Mt. Juliet Road exit.
The pickup truck was driven by Timothy Holloway of Lebanon and was struck by the van driven by Eric Bucklin of Mt. Juliet.
“(Holloway) was slowing for traffic in front of him when the second vehicle failed to stop and hit him,” Hambrick said.
Neither Holloway nor Bucklin were injured in the accident.
The incident backed up eastbound traffic on I-40 from around the Nashville International Airport until after 6 p.m. when the wreck was cleared.
Hambrick said no charges have been filed in the incident.
