Adult, Child Injured in Memphis, TN, 18-wheeler Accident on I-40

Memphis, TN -- June 6, 2017, an adult and a child were both seriously injured after an accident where a car and an 18-wheeler crashed on I-40.

According to reports released by the Memphis Police Department, the incident took place at around 4:15 p.m. near the intersection of I-40 (Dr. MLK Jr. Expressway) and Highway 14 (Jackson Avenue).

Police officials stated that the accident involved a passenger car and an 18-wheeler. There were scarce details on how the accident occurred. Photos show both vehicles traveling in the same direction on the interstate, and somehow the car ended up beneath the side of the trailer.

From that car, an adult and a child passenger both sustained serious injuries. They were taken to Regional Medical Center and Le Bonheur Children's Hospital respectively. The truck driver appears not to have sustained injuries.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
