Jefferson County (WVLT) - Jefferson county dispatchers say Interstate 40 West is back open at the I-40 / I-81 split.
At about 2:00 a.m. Friday morning, an 18 wheeler turned over on I-40 Westbound, blocking both lanes.
Troopers with the Tennessee Highway Patrol diverted traffic to I-81.
The truck was carrying empty crates and several cases of shampoo.
The highway had to be shut down for several hours while crews cleaned up the wreck and the shampoo.
It opened back up at about noon.
