One killed in early morning trucking accident in Grundy County
Posted By Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge || Mar 25, 2011
One person was killed and several others were seriously injured Thursday in an early morning trucking accident on I-24 between Manchester and Monteagle. So far, authorities have little information about those involved in the wreck, which was a collision between a tractor-trailer and a passenger van.
According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, the truck/car accident occurred around 6:30 a.m. on March 24, in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 24 near mile marker 129 in Grundy County. Troopers were able to say that it had been a collision between a van and a commercial truck but had not yet determined the cause of the trucking accident by the time reporters turned in their stories.
The THP has confirmed that one person died as a result of the wreck but has not released any identifying information about the victim.
Witnesses saw helicopters transporting several other accident victims to hospitals in Chattanooga, but no official report has been released about the number of people who were injured or their identities.
Whenever a large commercial truck collides with a passenger vehicle, the size differential between the two vehicles tends to make the crash extremely serious.
An investigation into the cause of the fatal accident is ongoing, and I-24 was shut down for several hours during rush hour as accident investigators tried to determine what happened and road crews worked to clear the debris. The Interstate was reopened this afternoon.
