I-40 West TN Crash - 11-6-19

MEMPHIS, TN (WSMV) - Local news outlets are reporting two Tennessee Department of Transportation workers have died in a crash involving multiple vehicles on I-40 in Shelby County.

According to WMC-TV, the crash occurred just before 4 a.m. and I-40 is expected to be closed for quite some time in the area of the crash.

The two contracted employees worked for A & A Safety out of Ohio. The contractor was working in a mobile work zone within a lane closure, replacing snow plowable markers along the interstate.

A Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper was also injured in the crash, and was taken to a Memphis-area hospital where his condition is currently not available.
