NASHVILLE, Tenn.--The eastbound and westbound lanes of I-40 are facing delays due to an overturned tractor trailer near Fesslers at mile marker 211.
The crash is not expected to be cleared until 12pm by law enforcement. Investigators are waiting for trucking company officials to arrive from Memphis. Investigators are waiting because the company has the tools needed to unload the truck.
Once the company arrives, HAZMAT crews can finish cleaning the fiberglass, resin and fuel.
The driver reportedly suffered a head injury in the crash.
