Smyrna police reported a “serious” car crash that occurred Wednesday morning, officials said.

“The driver is lucky to be alive,” police spokesman Sgt. Louis Defense said.

The single-vehicle wreck happened about 7:30 a.m. on the East-West Connector between Fontaine Street and Cooper Lake Road, Defense said.

The white car was severely damaged in the crash and appeared to be split in half, but the woman driving suffered only non-life-threatening injuries. She was taken to a hospital.

No one else was in the vehicle.

The East-West Connector was closed for hours while authorities responded to the wreck. It reopened shortly after 10 a.m.
