UPDATE: I-24 WB re-opened after tractor trailer crash

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: Interstate 24 westbound in Marion County has been re-opened to traffic after a crash involving several big trucks.

Traffic is still backed-up on the interstate. Drivers should expect delays or seek alternate routes.


PREVIOUS STORY: This morning a tractor trailer carrying double haulers lost control of the second hauler being carried. The second hauler flipped and disconnected from the load shutting down I-24 westbound in Marion County at the state line around mile marker 166.

The driver was transported to a local hospital, but is expected to be okay.

Use an alternate route this morning if possible

We are already seeing a back-up to I-59.

Channel 3 currently has a crew tracking the developments of when the roadways will be back open.

    Good Tuesday.  We are all under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY and some of us under a WIND CHILL ADVISORY through the day. It will be cold all day with high temperatures only reaching the upper 20s and low 30s.  These high temps will be reached early on at about noon, and then temps will be dropping through the afternoon as a cold front works through.
