At 2:35 p.m., Memphis Police officers responded to a crash involving two MATA trolleys at the intersection of Main Street and Auction Avenue. Four ambulances made the scene, but MPD spokesperson Alyssa Moore said she did not know yet if anyone was transported to the hospital.

The Memphis Fire Department has reported that the crash occurred when the trolley line lost power. There is an MPD investigation ongoing.
