NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A semi truck driver has been arrested on a DUI charge after a rollover crash in Bordeaux.

The wreck happened on northbound Briley Parkway near the exit for County Hospital Road around 12:20 a.m. Tuesday.

Metro police says the driver, James Ledford, was heading east when he lost control, rolled down the embankment and flipped, causing the truck to land on its side about 150 feet off the road.

Police say the driver appeared to be impaired, so they gave him a field sobriety test, which he allegedly failed.

Officials say no one was injured in the crash.
