GREENBRIER TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – The driver of a flat bed truck narrowly escaped serious injury after his vehicle left the roadway and overturned.
The accident occurred on New Cut Road between Betts Rd and Blackpatch. (Location of wreck) The road was closed for over two hours while the Tennessee Highway Patrol investigated the accident and crews cleaned up the scene. The call came into 911 at 3:30 and at 5:50 p.m. the road was still closed.
The driver told Smokey Barn News that he had a blowout on one of the trailer tires which caused the trailer to fishtail ultimately causing the wreck.
The driver did have some small cuts on his head. “I was worried it was going to catch on fire so I got out fast and I think that’s when I cut myself,” he said.
