KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A rollover wreck in west Knoxville shut down a stretch of S. Northshore Dr. early Thursday morning. Both directions of traffic closed as rescue teams worked to free a woman trapped inside her overturned SUV.
The crash happened around 4:30 a.m. in the 7300 block of S. Northshore Dr., near Audena Lane SW. At least one power line was knocked down, making it more difficult for emergency crews to reach the victim. The scene was cleared and traffic rolling again by around 6:00 a.m.
She has been taken to UT medical Center for treatment. KUB workers have been called to the scene to clear the live wire.
Investigators are still trying to piece together what happened. Right now, they aren't even sure which way the SUV was heading.
