Few details are being released about a fatal accident that occurred on I-840 early Tuesday morning (01/10/2023). In fact, not even a preliminary crash report is being released on the wreck that happened near the Arno Road exit, about 5-miles past the Triune / Arrington exit on I-840-West.

Both vehicles that were involved in the incident were believed to be in the westbound lane when they collided. One vehicle slammed into a guardrail while the other vehicle went into the grassy median divide. As a result of the accident, one person died in the crash and another was transported to a nearby hospital with what were described as critical injuries.


On Wednesday, the Tennessee Highway Patrol told WGNS NEWS, “After consultation with the district attorney’s office, any additional information will be released after the investigation is completed.” As of Wednesday night, the names of those involved in the wreck have not been made public.
