MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - Police responded to a fatal crash involving 10 cars at Raleigh Lagrange Road and Covington Pike on Wednesday afternoon.

It sent six people to the hospital; one adult died. A four-year-old was critically injured.

Witnesses described the horrific scene with cars flipping and spinning uncontrollably as they were hit by a car just yards away from the intersection.

"It sounded like thunder," said resident Kayla Johnson. "It upsets me. It makes me sad. I can't imagine being in anybody's shoes that has to deal with that."

The rear of one car was completely gone; others were twisted up.

Police blocked traffic to the area for hours. Investigators have not released the name of the driver who died as of Wednesday night.
