Tractor trailer accident blocking lanes on Interstate 26 in Unicoi County

Tennessee Highway Patrol and Unicoi County dispatchers say a tractor trailer has jackknifed on Interstate 26 just along the North Carolina border. Dispatchers tell us this happened around 5:30 a.m. in the Sam’s Gap area.
Officials say it's blocking 15 feet of the westbound lane, and completely blocking the eastbound lane of Interstate 26.

Crews say they're seeing patches of black ice in the mountains of Unicoi County, and are working to reroute traffic at this time. Source
