The Tennessee Highway Patrol closed the westbound lanes of Interstate 40 in Cumberland County after multiple semi-trucks were involved in a collision.
Per a report by WKRN.com, at least one semi-truck overturned during the crash, which occurred just after 1 p.m. near Monterey, Tennessee.
Heavy rainfall from Tropical Storm Cindy may have contributed to the crash, as the interstate was slick at the time of the accident.
A THP spokesperson told reporters that the crash had caused traffic to back up for several miles. It’s unknown if anyone was injured during the multi-truck accident. The THP also said that drivers can expect the westbound lanes to remain closed for several hours as they work to investigate the crash and clear the scene.
