I-40 cleaned up after tractor-trailer overturned

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)- It took nearly four hours to clean up a mess from an overturned tanker truck Saturday.

It closed down the west bound entrance to I-40 at Rutledge Pike.

Police weren't available to tell us what the truck was carrying but there were no reports of any leaks or hazardous materials.
