Big rig dilemma on Cedar Creek Road before daybreak.

LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – The first call to WLAF came in around 7:30 Monday morning about a big rig in trouble on Cedar Creek Road. “He has the whole road blocked, and I’m going across Victory to get to La Follette,” said the WLAF Road Warrior.

It’s a miracle this big rig did not overturn.

The big rig is off the road, blocking the road between the Cedar Creek Bridge and Victory Road. That’s on the east side of the bridge.

One witness described the load as being cellphone tower parts.

Reeds Wrecker Service is working to right the rig and reopen that section of Cedar Creek Road. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 03/13/2023-NOON-PHOTOS COURTESY OF EMA DIRECTOR JAY MUNCY)
