UPDATE: According to officials on the scene, a male driver of an 18-wheeler was transported to Huntsville Hospital with minor injuries.
The 18-wheeler has been cleared from the scene. Officials said the 18-wheeler hit a truck doing construction on the road, causing it to go over the guardrail. A cleanup company from Chattanooga responded to help clean up the debris.
The crews wanted to clear the scene before the rain. If it rained, diesel on the payment could soak in and cause problems.
The Jacksonville County Emergency Management Agency has responded to a two-vehicle crash on U.S. 72 at the top of Woodville Hill.
At least one 18-wheeler is involved.
The EMA says motorists should try to avoid the area for the next few hours.
