HAMILTON COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -
A tractor trailer hauling 38,000 pounds of steel and other materials partially overturned Thursday morning on the 100 block of Retro Hughes Road near Bakewell.
The road has been temporarily closed until the accident can be cleared and the load of materials can be transferred. The closure has forced the road to be blocked off approximately one mile before the incident just as the road begins to head up the mountain.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol is actively working the incident.
There's currently no time estimate for the road to be re-opened. Motorists should use an alternate route if possible.
