MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

One person is dead following a four-car crash involving an 18-wheeler in Frayser.

The crash happened around 5 p.m. near the intersection of Whitney Avenue and Thomas Street.

Memphis Police Department confirmed one person died in the crash.  

A car involved in the crash was split in half.

One driver said the force of the crash sent the car airborne, narrowly missing his vehicle.

"I called my wife. My wife worries about me so first thing I did was call her,” Michael Williamson said. “And I didn't have to worry about calling 911 because everybody that saw it was calling, everybody."

Police had the intersection shut down for several hours while they investigated.

There is no word yet if anyone will be charged.
