Overturned tractor-trailer blocks traffic on I-40 and Pellissippi Parkway

Traffic was backed up on the Pellissippi Parkway and I-40 before crews finished cleaning up a wreckage of an overturned tractor-trailer.

KNOX COUNTY - Crews are working to clear a tractor-trailer from I-40W at the Pellissippi Parkway ramp after it overturned. 

Knoxville police said no one was seriously hurt in the incident.

The wreck has caused major traffic backups on I-40  and I-140 because it is blocking a key interchange between the two interstates.
