Major Accident Snarling Traffic in Memphis This Morning

OCTOBER 4, 2006 - Posted at 7:38 a.m. CDT

 

MEMPHIS, TN - Headed to Memphis this morning?  Be prepared for a significant slowdown in traffic as you cross the bridge(s) over the Mississippi River, if so.

A fatal crash involving two tractor-trailer rigs has tied up traffic on a busy Memphis route. 

The crash is at Lamar and Concorde and police expect the intersection to be tied up for most of the morning.  Traffic is being detoured, and motorists are being encouraged to take alternate routes if at all possible.

At least one Memphis radio station reports that traffic will be heavily congested in the area until at least noon.
