LINCOLN COUNTY, Tenn. (WHNT) – One man is in critical condition after a wreck Thursday morning just over the state line in Tennessee.

It happened just before 7 a.m. on Highway 231-431, south of Park City, involving a Chevrolet truck and an 18-wheeler.

The driver of the pickup truck was flown by helicopter to Nashville.

Both northbound lanes were closed and only one southbound lane was open while crews worked the scene.

There have been several bad wrecks in this same area, including one in December that killed a teenage girl.
