News


Crews shut down part of Maynardville Highway in Union County Wednesday morning because of a crash during winter weather involving a garbage truck.

The incident happened between Hickory Valley and Sharps Chapel, on the north side of Seymour ridge.

Troopers on the scene told 10News a truck was going down the hill when it began to slide. It hit a guard rail then slid over and landed on its side.

The driver was a little shaken up, but did not go to the hospital. No other vehicles were involved.

As of 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, one lane was open and THP was working to get traffic moving. THP estimated it will take an hour to fully clear the road once a tow truck makes it to the scene.
