CUMBERLAND COUNTY, TN – According to 1057 News, eight people were injured in a chain-reaction crash on Interstate 40 in Cumberland County Saturday.

A total of six vehicles were involved in the accident on I-40 east at the 324 mile marker in Cumberland County. The Tennessee Highway Patrol said five vehicles approaching a bridge construction site in the left lane had stopped or slowed down due to traffic.  A tractor-trailer was unable to stop and rear-ended a Honda Odyssey, with the impact causing the other vehicles to be pushed into each other.

Five adults and three children were injured in the crash, but none of the injuries were considered life-threatening. The driver of the tractor-trailer, 25-year-old Nachhater Singh of Fresno, California, was charged with failure to exercise due care.
