Bad news, Tennessee Titans fans. Getting out of Nissan Stadium is going to be a real pain after the Sunday afternoon football game.
According to NBC affiliate WSMV, an accident involving two tractor-trailers is currently causing some traffic headaches. Nashville Fire shared with the media outlet two semis were involved in an accident. The situation occurred on I-24 East near I-40 downtown. This is near the Nissan Stadium where the Tennessee Titans are currently playing.
To make matters worse, one of the semis was leaking an unknown fluid onto the roadway. This is resulting in hazmat crews from Nashville Fire being called onto the scene.
The crew has discovered that the leaking substance was a compound product. Which included an adhesive used in Scotch Guard. Nashville Fire is said to have contained the spill and is turning the situation over to TDOT.
There has yet to be a timeline as to when the road is set to reopen.
