An off-ramp on Interstate 65 South in Davidson County remains closed for the second time on Tuesday after a tractor trailer overturned earlier in the day.

The accident was reported at mile marker 79 around 11 a.m.

Authorities said the driver was attempting to exit on Armory Drive when he ran over the guard rail and into the ditch, causing his big rig to overturn.

Southbound traffic was affected with the off-ramp blocked for several hours as crews worked on the scene.

The off-ramp was reopened for rush hour traffic, but is now closed again while crews are working to remove the truck.

It is expected to be cleared by 11 p.m.

The driver was transported to an area hospital for minor injuries.

No additional information was released.
