The car accident that seriously injured Grayson Chrisley, the son of Todd and Julie Chrisley, occurred earlier this month in Nashville. The Chrisley family has become famous because of the reality series “Chrisley Knows Best,” which has been airing for the past nine years and has spawned several spinoffs.
On the 12th of November, an accident happened when a driver stopped at a stop sign on Interstate 65 North and was rear-ended. Using information from the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department, News determined that 16-year-old Chrisley was the second vehicle’s driver.
The first car’s driver was hurt in the collision, but he rejected ambulance evacuation. Chrisley “cannot recall anything from the accident, probably owing to a brain injury,” the department said. A medical ambulance took him there.
Heavy congestion on I-65N resulted in the towing of both automobiles. The collision occurred almost a week ago, but news of it only began to spread this week, thanks to TMZ.
The teen’s parents were awaiting punishment after being convicted of fraud and tax evasion earlier this year when the news of the accident broke. The Associated Press reported that at around 11 p.m. on Monday, both Todd and Julie Chrisley were given sentences of 12 years in jail plus 16 months on probation.
Federal prosecutors recommended 17.5 to nearly 22 years in prison for Todd Chrisley and 10 to 12.5 years for Julie Chrisley in a sentencing memorandum they released earlier this month. The sentencing hearing began on Monday and will resume on Tuesday.

The Chrisleys’ offences, according to the prosecution, were more severe than initially thought, and they should serve a longer sentence. “engaged in a lengthy scheme to swindle community banks out of tens of millions of dollars,” the authorities claimed of the couple.
U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Buchanan claims the pair conspired to cheat community banks in the Atlanta region out of more than $30 million in personal loans before their show premiered in 2014.
The Chrisleys and their ex-business partner lied to lenders to get millions in fraudulent loans, which they lavishly spent on luxury goods and extravagant vacations. To settle the older debts, they took out additional loans.

Savannah, their daughter, talked to Entertainment Tonight about her parents last week. “I have had to cope with this whole legal struggle that has been aired over the news from the perspective of a child,” the 25-year-old added. It was pretty challenging to feel like we couldn’t speak our truth since I know their hearts and what they are and aren’t capable of.
Kyle and Lindsie Chrisley are Todd’s children from a previous relationship. Todd and Julie Chrisley raised Chase Chrisley, now 26, and took in Chloe, aged 10.
