CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — Police in Tennessee say one person has been injured when a section of a concrete wall on an interstate highway collapsed and hit a car.
Chattanooga police said on Twitter the section fell Monday from an overpass on northbound Interstate 75 in Chattanooga onto I-24 below. Police tell the Chattanooga Times Free Press the injury was not believed to be life threatening.
A frightening bridge collapse at one of the most heavily trafficked intersections in the country, where 75 and 24 meet. Truly miraculous that no one was seriously injured. @myTDOT is one the scene assessing cause and traffic solutions pic.twitter.com/CFrkPNZVJL— Andy Berke (@AndyBerke) April 1, 2019
The southbound lanes of I-75 are closed and traffic is being rerouted. Highway crews are working to remove the concrete section.
