Truck Crash Shuts Down I-65 in Jackson County

A Knoxville, TN man escaped serious injury when the trailer he was pulling blew a tire causing the truck equipped with a drilling rig on its trailer to flip on I-65 in Jackson County Thursday night.


The Jackson County Sheriff's Office says Christopher D. Stilwell suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken to Schneck Medical Center ER for treatment.


Witnesses told Jackson County Deputy Brad Barker that a loud pop was heard and then the trailer fishtailed causing the truck to swerve out of control and flip on its top in the middle of the interstate before coming to rest in the median at mile marker 35 around 8:30 p.m.


Both southbound lanes of I-65 in that area were closed for about 90 minutes so clean up could take place.
