Roadways in areas of Cumberland County were icy enough to cancel school Wednesday morning and areas of I-40 were just as icy causing two accidents, one of which closed down the interstate for hours. According to reports, the first accident occurred around 2:30 AM when a truck traveling westbound between mile markers 334 and 332 hit black ice and losing control. The driver, a 44-year-old male, was taken to Cumberland Medical Center for non-life threatening injuries. That wreck shutdown the interstate and had authorities redirecting traffic for hours. A second accident was reported around 11 AM in the eastbound lane of the interstate in the same area when a truck flipped into the median. The 42-year-old driver and a 47-year-old passenger, both male, were also transported to CMC for slight injuries.
