MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A car and a tractor trailer crashed on East Raines Road just east of Memphis International Airport around noon Thursday.

Memphis Police Department said a small Honda car got trapped underneath an 18-wheeler. The Honda's driver was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

It's unclear what caused the crash. Police have not filed any charges against the drivers involved in the crash.

A truck driver with more than 30 years of experience said he hopes all drivers can start being more careful on the road, especially when near 18-wheelers.

"They just pull in front of you, jam on breaks or whatever. It's real dangerous out here," Michael Wesley said.
