KNOXVILLE (WATE) – At least one person was killed in an Interstate 40 crash that caused traffic backups for hours in Knoxville Wednesday afternoon.
Three vehicles were involved in the crash on Interstate 40 eastbound near the Papermill exit, one of which was a tractor trailer. Knoxville police say one vehicle swerved in front of a tractor trailer.
The tractor trailer hit the vehicle, sending it over the middle lane where it was hit by another car. Police believe a medical issue may be to blame.
