GREENE COUNTY, Tenn. (WJHL) – Two people were transported to the hospital after a tractor-trailer crashed on Interstate 81 on Tuesday.
According to a crash report from the Tennessee Highway Patrol, the tractor-trailer was driving north on I-81 near mile marker 48 around 3:22 p.m. when a tire malfunctioned.
The report says the driver was Dawin Reyes-Calderon, 24 of Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania.
According to THP, Reyes-Calderon lost control of the vehicle and ran off the right side of the roadway.
THP reports the tractor-trailer “overturned and came to rest against a tree line.”
The report says no other vehicles were involved in the crash.
Both Reyes-Calderon and a passenger, Nixon Cantillo, 48 of Texas, were transported to local hospitals for treatment of non life-threatening injuries.
One of the northbound lanes of the interstate was still closed as of 10 p.m. on Tuesday due to crews off-loading the cargo from the tractor-trailer to a new vehicle.
