ROBERTSON COUNTY, TN (WSMV) - A tractor-trailer carrying copper spools overturned on Interstate 65 northbound near Millersville overnight.

According to TDOT SmartWay, the accident occurred at mile marker 104 around 2:41 a.m. and was not expected to be cleared until at least 10 a.m. The scene has since cleared, however.

Crews unloaded the spools to get the truck back upright, but the process took some time since the spools were very heavy.

The driver received a cut to his head in the crash and a passenger in the truck complained of back pain. Both were taken to TriStar Skyline Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries. is now with you on the go!
