An ongoing incident is taking place in the Nashville area. Police have stopped a box truck at a convenience store along the highway outside the city. The truck was playing similar audio to the RV that exploded on a downtown Nashville street on Christmas morning. 

In the Christmas Day incident, a female computer-generated voice told residents to evacuate the area before an explosion rocked the neighborhood.

Fox 17 in Nashville has been reporting that police from Wilson and Rutherford counties stopped a vehicle on Highway 231 South near Cedars of Lebanon. Police officials told the news station that the box truck was traveling from Rutherford County to Wilson.

The Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office said that its dispatchers were alerted by a call about 10:30 a.m. about the white box truck parked at Crossroads Market in Walter Hill. As a precaution, police have shut down Highway 231 South from Cedars of Lebanon Park to Richmond Shop. 

“Sheriff’s deputies in Rutherford and Wilson Counties are investigating a box truck parked at a convenience store playing audio similar to what was heard before the Christmas Day explosion in Nashville,” Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office said in a released statement.

“The driver traveled from Rutherford County into Wilson County where he was stopped by deputies and detained.”

“As a precaution, nearby residents were evacuated during the active investigation,” the statement continued.
