Fatal accident on I-75 detour route

One person is dead after a crash on an I-75 detour road in Campbell County, Tennessee.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol says the person was killed when a tractor trailer truck crashed on U.S. 25 West and rolled down a slope.

The route was being used for southbound traffic due to the construction on I-75.

Traffic was diverted onto Tennessee 297 while the scene was cleaned up.

The identity of the victim has not been released.

Officials believe fog could have played a factor in the crash.
