According to the crash report from MNPD, there was heavy traffic at the time of the crash, resulting in many cars being stopped in the middle of the road.

Officials said when asked about what happened, Chrisley claimed he could not remember anything from the accident. However, officers at the scene said this was due to a possible head injury he sustained from the crash.


Chrisley was transported to the hospital after the accident, whereas the other driver refused to be transported although they had sustained injuries from the crash, police said. Chrisley’s current condition is unknown.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene. Authorities have not released the identity of the driver hit by Chrisley.
