One person is dead and several are injured in a chain-reaction crash by 45 vehicles on a foggy highway near Nashville during the morning rush hour.

Police say the pileup began shortly before 7 a.m. Thursday on a state highway northeast of Nashville. There was dense fog and reports of icy patches.

Shawna Zodi, a spokeswoman for the Hendersonville Medical Center, said eight people had been brought to the hospital's emergency room. Zodi confirmed there was one death among those
patients, but there were no immediate details about the victim. She
said most of those brought in did not have critical injuries and said in talking with ambulance crews on the scene, most other injuries appeared to be relatively minor.

All eastbound lanes of the parkway were closed.
