Highway Patrol responded to I-40 towards Old Fort Mountain after numerous calls of two rollovers in the westbound lane. According to Trooper Kirk Hensley, a blown tire on a car hauler trailer created a chain reaction that resulted in two vehicles slipping from the trailer and toppling on the roadway. There were no injuries reported and no moving vehicles involved, according to Hensley.
