(WBIR) Crews have shut down a section of Edgemoor Road in both directions, following a fatal accident in Anderson County Wednesday morning.

The crash, involving a semi truck and a pickup, happened shortly before 6:15 a.m. between S. Dogwood Road and Old Edgemoor Road near Clinton Highway, according to a Tennessee Highway Patrol dispatcher.

State troopers and deputies are still on scene rerouting traffic in both directions down Old Edgemoor Road. Authorities said drivers should avoid this area if possible. When crews finish clearing the crash, the Tennessee Department of Transportation must repair pavement damaged in the accident. We don't know when they'll reopen both lanes.

We'll keep you updated on 10News and wbir.com as more information becomes available.
