According to authorities, two people were killed and one was injured in a collision involving two tractor-trailers on Dec. 2 in Nashville on Interstate 24. The collision occurred just after 5 a.m. when one of the tractor-trailers that was heading eastbound crossed over the grass median, slamming into a FedEx truck. The crash caused both vehicles to burst into flames, killing both drivers on westbound Interstate 24 just north of downtown Nashville.
A 63-year-old tractor-trailer driver reportedly struck a Tennessee Department of Transportation utility truck on Interstate 24 around 1:45 p.m. on Sept. 4. The accident occurred in Manchester when two TDOT employees decided to turn on a flashing sign instructing other drivers to move over because of an accident further down the interstate. However, the driver of the tractor-trailer failed to move over and consequently slammed into the back of the TDOT truck, pushing it into a rock wall before it jack-knifed and hit the wall itself.
