News4 has learned the tractor-trailer that caught fire on Interstate 24 on Monday morning was carrying peoples’ mail.

I-24 West reopens after being shut down due to semi-fire

We first told you about this as breaking news on News4 Today. It’s pretty scary when you think about it; bills, tax returns, medical records. You could be expecting something important on the truck that caught fire.

News4 is Working 4 You with answers on what happens next if you’re someone who had mail on that truck.

On that truck was mail heading to Clarksville.

A spokeswoman for the United States Postal Service tells News4 that customers who had mail on that truck will receive a letter letting them know. That letter will have instructions on how to contact your local postmaster.

If you don’t receive a letter in the mail soon, then you are not someone who was affected by this.

It was around 4:45 a.m. when the tractor-trailer hydroplaned slamming into a bridge on I-24 west near Old Hickory Blvd. Luckily, the driver was not seriously hurt and is expected to be okay.
