One Severely Injured In Interstate 24 Tractor-Trailer Crash

A wreck involving two tractor-trailers on Interstate 24 at the Fort Campbell Boulevard exit in Christian County sent a man to a Nashville hospital Thursday afternoon.

Christian County Sheriff’s deputies say a tractor-trailer was stopped due to traffic merging into a single lane in a construction zone when a second tractor-trailer rear-ended the truck.

The crash caused one of the trucks to hit the guardrail and come to a stop trapping the driver inside.

One of the drivers was taken by ambulance to meet with a waiting helicopter that transferred him to a Nashville hospital with severe injuries.

The crash happened just after 2 p.m. The eastbound lanes are expected to be blocked until around 6 p.m.
