JELLICO, TN (WLAF) – Until just after 2 pm Friday, at least one lane of Interstate 75 at Mile Marker 157, between the Rarity Mountain and Jellico Exits, had been closed since 5:05 AM on Friday. Both lanes were closed for about four hours after three big rigs and three vehicles wrecked on an icy stretch of I-75. Reports are that one person was seriously injured and several others suffered minor injuries. Traffic was backed up for miles as a result of the shutdown.
EMA Director Jay Muncy takes us through the scene from earlier today at MM 157 on I-75.
