Two accidents just ten minutes apart on Interstate 40 in Roane County this afternoon resulted in traffic being backed up for miles at one point. According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, a 2007 Pontiac Vibe driven by 65-year-old Roy Rossignol of Smyrna, Tennessee was traveling west at the 359 mile marker just after 3 p.m. when he ran off the left side of the road, struck a cable barrier, went into the median and rolled over. The vehicle came to rest on its top. Rossignol and a passenger in his vehicle, 64-year-old Shaun Rossignol of Smyrna, Tennesse, were both transported to Fort Loudon Medical Center for treatment of injuries. The second accident took place at the 347 mile marker eastbound when a 2004 Infinity G35 driven by 19-year-old Amir Williams of Antioch, Tennessee came upon slowing traffic and swerved to the right to avoid a collision. Williams vehicle went off the right side of the roadway, down an embankment and into a wooded area. Williams was not injured in the accident.
