18-wheeler crash on 231 northbound impacting traffic into Huntsville

LACEY’S SPRING, Ala. — Gasoline Alley was backed up for miles Monday morning due to a 18-wheeler wreck just before the Tennessee River Bridge. According to the Lacey’s Spring Fire Department, the semi hit the cement median just after 4 a.m.

Both northbound lanes were closed for a couple of hours and southbound lanes were slowed to a crawl. The northbound shoulder was opened and traffic was still being diverted that way after noon while officials were still cleaning the scene.

Officials say the driver told them it was so foggy that he lost track of the road. There are no reported injuries.
