A tractor-trailer overturned early Wednesday morning in Bean Station, delaying traffic for several hours while the accident was cleaned up.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol said Clarence Dezarn, of Manchester, Kentucky, was heading south on U.S. Highway 25E in a 2009 Peterbuilt truck. Near the intersection of Lakeshore Drive, the truck went off the edge of the road and overturned, a report said.
The truck came to rest facing north in the right lane of traffic.
Only one-lane of traffic was open on the southbound lane of U.S. Highway 25E for several hours.
As of presstime, the THP had not said if there would be any charges pending in the incident.
