The Daily Brief….February 18, 2024


ROBERTSON COUNTY, TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – This will be the SECOND installment of the Daily Brief. The Daily Brief will be news reports covering alerts and other news that Smokey Barn News publishes on Social Media throughout the day but not here on our main website. We have received numerous messages from Smokey readers that are not on social media and therefore miss many alerts. If you are not on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter (X) then this report is for you. This report (published daily) will mirror all of our social media accounts.  Updates will be added to the Daily Brief throughout the day, just reload this page to see the most current content for Sunday, February 18, 2024. So, if you are not on Social media, Smokey’s Daily Brief will keep you in the loop!!

We have a single-vehicle injury crash on I 24 WEST just above Highway 49 near Pleasant View. The crash is situated on the westbound side so the effect on traffic should be minimal but officials are talking about shutting the interstate down to land a medical helicopter on the interstate. If you’re traveling in that area expect delays or you may want to seek alternative an route for the next hour.

Crash involves extraction.

We have a couple more photos for you from Sunday morning’s tanker fire in Springfield. If it weren’t for the brave actions of Springfield firefighters and the alert passerby Monica Yates, it could’ve been much worse. For the full story and video CLICK HERE.
