BLUFF CITY, Tenn. (WJHL) — A single-vehicle crash involving a dump truck closed Bluff City Highway Tuesday afternoon, according to Bluff City Police Chief Greg Depew.

Authorities responded to the incident near Lakeview Drive and town hall around 12:45 p.m. to find that the dump truck’s bed had come up and snagged a power line, taking down four Century Link poles.

First responders transported the driver to the Johnson City Medical Center, but he was “alert and conscious” at the scene, Depew said.

A release from Bluff City Mayor Jeff Broyles states that the highway will be closed from Fleming Drive to Lakeview Drive until 4 p.m. Wednesday.
