The roadway, however, has since been cleared. Additional details about the accident including whether anyone was injured or killed, the extent of property damage, and what caused the two crashes are still pending.
Interstate 40 is one of the most dangerous roads in Tennessee, and because it stretches the entirety of the state it sees many deadly accidents throughout Tennessee. In actuality, as a road that crosses eight states, Interstate 40 witnesses far too many accidents throughout the country that result in fatalities and serious injuries each year.
Some of the most common reasons why accidents occur on Interstate 40 include traffic density, distracted driving, impaired motorists, commercial truck drivers who fail to follow federal regulations, dangerous and reckless driving, and fatigued drivers or motorists who fall asleep at the wheel.
