Collegedale Police are investigating a head-on collision they say claimed one person's life and sent another person to the hospital Monday.

It happened on Lee Highway a quarter of a mile from the intersection at Edgmon Road.

Police spokeswoman Bridgette Raper tells us that the other person is believed to have non-life-threatening injuries.

Raper says this is the same area where just last week, a man was airlifted after police say he crashed into a garbage truck.

Just before 6:30 p.m., Collegedale Police announced that Lee Highway reopened to traffic.

At this time, police have not released the identities of those involved.

This is a developing story and will be updated as we learn more.
