MARION – A fatal accident and a semi trailer roll-over were reported Tuesday afternoon on I-57 in Williamson County.

According to ISP, troopers responded to a rolled over semi trailer on the right shoulder of northbound I-57 near milepost 44 shortly before 2:30 p.m.

The truck had a flat tire and the driver pulled over on the right shoulder and unhooked the semi with trailer. When the driver pulled the semi from under the trailer, the right jack stand sank in the dirt and caused the trailer to roll over on its right side. The trailer was damaged but did not lose its load of pineapples. The trailer was removed at 6:10 p.m. No further information is available.

Then around 2:40 p.m. troopers responded to a single-vehicle fatal crash on northbound I-57 near Marion.
