U.S. 25E in Claiborne County reduced to 1 lane, mulch truck overturned


TAZEWELL (WATE) – Southbound traffic on U.S. 25E in Claiborne County is reduced to one lane because a tractor trailer hauling 40,000 pounds of mulch has overturned.

The crash happened around 4:30 p.m. near the intersection with Lower Caney Valley Road.

The driver suffered minor injuries.

Troopers say the crash will not be cleared until at least 11 p.m. because they have to unload the mulch before they can move the truck.

Northbound traffic is not affected.
