A wreck involving an overturned tractor trailer caused delays for commuters on Interstate 40 near the Williamson County line.

The incident happened around 3 a.m. Monday on the entrance ramp from Highway 96 to I-40 eastbound.

Officials said the driver failed to navigate the storm and flipped over onto the ramp. The person suffered minor injuries.

Crews said the semi is too heavy to move because it has a full load. They’re going to wait until after rush hour to unload the rig so they can move it.

Cones have been placed around the tractor trailer.
