. @THPNashville is actively working 5 separate crashes involving CMV’s on I-40 WB 243-240 MM. The road is extremely slick. Please slow down, most of these crashes could have been prevented by adjusting speed for the conditions! pic.twitter.com/1cu2wdBSsM— THPNashville (@THPNashville) February 16, 2021
Weather conditions likely lead to each of the collisions. Photos from the scene depict at least one tractor-trailer rolled on its side and several passenger vehicles damaged in the median.
It is unclear if any serious injuries were sustained as a result of any of the crashes at this time.
