Two Tennessee Tractor-Trailer Accidents Block I-40
Tennessee media sources reported two Tractor-trailer crashes on I-40 yesterday leaving one trucker dead and several others seriously injured. WKRN Channel 2 in Nashville reported that in a Nashville tractor-trailer accident a rig hauling steel veered off of East bound Interstate 40 just before white Bridge Rd. Police believe that the 42 year-old driver suffered some type of medical emergency which caused the accident. He was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. The driver was not wearing his seatbelt. Had he veered seconds later and not hit the barrier he would have driven headlong into an active construction zone.
Two hundred miles to the West, just outside of Memphis Tennessee, the Commercial Appeal reports on another Tennessee tractor-trailer accident. From the report it appears that a North Carolina driver pulled his three-trailer rig onto the shoulder and went off into the grass causing his tractor-trailer to veer back into traffic where he clipped a Saturn and ended up on his side blocking the East bound lane for several hours. The tractor-trailer driver was taken to the Regional Medical Center at Memphis in non-critical condition while the condition of the car driver and passengers is unknown at the present time.
