The Bradley County Sheriff's Office advises motorists that a section of Lower River Road near Charleston will remain closed until about 3:00am Tuesday.

Earlier Monday morning, an accident involving an 18-wheeler forced investigators to close the road to perform their investigation.

No serious injuries were reported.

The road will be closed from the 1700 block to the 2300 block, which is near the Candies Creek Wildlife Management Area.

Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes if possible.
