Semi Crashes Into Woods, Spills Lumber Near I-24

A crash involving a tractor trailer spilled lumber near Interstate 24 in Cheatham County, causing delays for more than 12 hours. 

The incident was reported at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in westbound lanes between Pleasant View and Joelton. 

The driver of a semi plowed through a guardrail and crashed into a wooded area after a car in front of him reportedly lost control.  

He said the impact of the crash caused his hood to pop up and all he could do was brace himself. As a result, a large amount of lumber spilled off the side of the interstate. 

No one was hurt in the crash. 

The wreck should fully clear by 10 a.m. Thursday.
