An overturned tractor-trailer on the Damon Gause bypass in Jefferson in front of the busy Kroger intersection had the southbound lane of the highway close Wednesday afternoon. The wreck happened around 2 p.m. Nobody was seriously injured. Clean-up was continuing as of 3:30 p.m. and traffic rerouted around the area. More information will be posted as it becomes available.
People will always be doing stupid things. There is no cure for this. The intersection is not the problem nor is Walmart or any other business wanting to bring a business to the area. It is the people who have accidents. To have Walmart at this location would be great for our area and people will learn how to navigate at the intersection just like they do when going to any business but we can't make anything full proof safe.
