Overturned tractor-trailer slows Nashville overnight traffic

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A tractor-trailer crash slowed traffic for hours near downtown Nashville overnight.

The big rig overturned on I-40 just past the Second Avenue exit.

Police had to shut down a few eastbound lanes while crews worked to clean up the mess.

Preliminary information said the tractor-trailer was going too fast, the driver lost control and rolled on its side. An SUV was partially trapped under the semi.

The drivers of both vehicles complained of injury, according to police, but refused to be transported.

It's unknown if any charges were filed against either driver.
