Rock falls onto Chapman Hwy, damaging five cars

Several rocks falling off a cliff caused some problems for several drivers Friday afternoon.

According to Knoxville Police, officers were called to Chapman Highway near Ye Olde Steakhouse around 2:15 pm. A basketball-sized rock fell into the roadway, and it damaged at least five vehicles. No one was injured.

One vehicle had to be towed away. The others were able to be driven after one or more damaged tires were changed.

TDOT engineers will examine the cliff to make sure there's not a possibility of more rocks falling onto the road.

All lanes are currently open on Chapman Highway.
