The cable barriers that stretch along interstates in Tennessee are supposed to serve a good purpose, but they are no match for some of the vehicles that travel on the roadways.
A long stretch of cable barrier on Interstate 40 in Roane County was damaged on Dec. 22 when a tractor trailer ran off the road around the 356 mile marker.
According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, the big rig entered and left the median, pulling the cable wire down the interstate. Its fuel tank ruptured and diesel fuel and oil was spilled on the roadway.
