Driver injured in overturned tanker on I 24

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – It looks like it could have been much worse.

A tanker truck flipped on I 24 around 4:20 Thursday morning near the Welcome Center west of Chattanooga.

Troopers tell us the driver was taken to the hospital.

But there was no HazMat spill.

It did take crews almost five hours to clear the scene.

Traffic backed up into Chattanooga heading westbound as they did it.

The wreck was finally cleared around 9 AM.
