Nashville Car Crash Leaves Grayson Chrisley Hospitalized
In a report obtained by TMZ from the Nashville police department, we learn that on November 12th, the youngest son of Todd and Julie Chrisley was taken to the hospital after an accident on a Tennessee freeway.
The Chrisley Knows Best star was driving his Ford F-150 on Interstate 65 North when he rear-ended a Dodge vehicle, according to the report. The other driver told police that Grayson’s car rear-ended him while he was halted in a lane of heavy bumper-to-bumper traffic.
The police report states that Grayson did not remember the incident when asked about it, possibly due to a head injury. Following his injury, the 16-year-old was taken by ambulance to the hospital.
The second driver in the accident was hurt, too, but they declined medical treatment, according to the report. According to the complaint, both vehicles were rendered inoperable and hauled from the site.
After the collision, authorities confirmed to TMZ that no one was arrested, charged, or issued a penalty.
A conviction for tax evasion and bank fraud had already been handed down to Grayson’s parents when this incident took place five months later. Todd and Julie, parents of 26-year-old son Chase and 25-year-old daughter Savannah, are currently awaiting sentencing and could receive sentences of up to 30 years in jail. (Todd’s ex-wife Teresa Terry gave birth to his children Kyle, 31, and Lindsie, 33.)
Todd mentioned shortly after the verdict that Grayson has had difficulty seeing harsh comments about his family online and gave his kid some wise advice: ignore the trolls.
“I said to him, ‘You understand that you’re allowing someone that you’re never going to meet and their comment to affect your day, your mood, your self-worth, who your family is,'” On the Chrisley Confessions podcast episode from June 29th, Todd revealed some personal information.
“If you would spend as much time listening to God as you do this message that someone sent, who has two followers and a cat as their emoji,…”
The 53-year-old has consistently maintained the couple’s innocence, pointing out that the support they’ve received “far outweighs any of the hatred” they’ve endured.
“The world keeps trying to heap shame on people to pull them down, but I don’t accept that,” Todd explained. “I won’t absorb shame for something I didn’t do.”
