A wreck Monday afternoon sent a vehicle into the Tennessee River.
It happened at Highway 35 and Highway 40 in Jackson County. According to Rocky Harnen, a spokesperson for the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, the brakes went out on a truck that was carrying a load of steel down the mountain.
Harnen says there was metal on the roadway after the wreck. He says a few people were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
Jackson County sheriff’s deputies and Alabama State Troopers responded.
