Travelers and truck drivers will now have access to health care on the road.

The first Urgent Car Travel clinic opened at the Pilot Flying J Travel Center on Strawberry Plains in east Knox County on Wednesday.

The company is partnering with Pilot Flying J to open more than 100 of these clinics at travel centers across the country over the next three years.

In addition to urgent care, the clinic will offer routine screenings and exams for drivers.

According to Urgent Care Travel, more than 65% of professional drivers don't have a primary physician.
