Tuesday morning was off to a horrific start in Tennessee when two semi trucks slammed into one another. The fatal crash happened on Interstate 24 near the Briley Parkway exit when one semi, which was hauling wood pallets, veered off the road, and crossed into oncoming traffic across the grassy medium. As a result, the semi hit a FedEx truck, and thus the truck hit another vehicle. Unfortunately, the chain-reaction crash caused a series of explosions, and the two semi trucks caught fire.
Sadly, the two tractor-trailer drivers were trapped inside their flame-engulfed trucks, and both died at the scene. The driver of the vehicle that was caught in the middle of the semi accidents was rushed to a nearby hospital with non-critical injuries.The exact cause of what caused the first semi to veer off the road is still under investigation, and drugs and alcohol do not seem to be a factor. Tragically, the driver of the first truck was burned so badly, dental records were used to identify him as, John Greer of Nashville. The driver of the second semi, which was killed, was, Michael Donley or Illinois.
