Yesterday , a tanker truck overturned on Briley Parkway here in Nashville , Tennessee (TN) . The tanker truck overturned for some unknown reason killing the driver. I do not know what the tanker was hauling , but I could see the black smoke as I was heading home from work . Briley Parkway was closed for four hours while the truck accident was cleared . Tanker trucks are more prone for load shift issues which could cause the truck to overturn.
