NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The driver of a tractor trailer was not injured Monday after his truck overturned on the on-ramp of Interstate 24 in East Nashville.

The incident was reported shortly before 5 a.m. Monday at Spring Street. The truck was hauling dry mix for concrete.

The driver told Blayke Roznowski that this is a regular route for him and he wasn't taking the curve too fast. He said he started to feel the back end begin to loosen and said there’s a safety mechanism in semis that automatically starts to brake if that happens -- which may have caused it to tip.

The ramp was blocked for several hours.
