Traffic moving again after Friday morning accident on I-40

An overturned tractor trailer snarled traffic for hours Friday morning on the eastbound ramp of I-40 east at I-240.

The accident happened at Exit 12C, under the I-240 flyover.

One person died in the accident.

Investigators said the tractor trailer hit a bridge support during the accident, prompting the Tennessee Department of Transportation to dispatch a structural engineer to inspect the support.

Traffic was shut down for much of the morning as crews worked to clear the scene of the accident.
