NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Icy conditions in Middle Tennessee have created hazardous travel conditions for drivers Thursday morning.
A crash has closed I-65 South at mile marker 57 near I-840 in Williamson County. TDOT did not have an estimated time of reopening.
Numerous crashes and issues have been reported along Interstate 24. At least two semi crashes have been reported and at least two tractor trailers have gotten stuck on the eastbound I-24 exit ramp on Sam Ridley Parkway in Smyrna.
Also on I-24, a semi slid down an embankment near Haywood Lane.
