Tennessee Highway Patrol officers have cleared the scene on the W Road after an 18-wheeler rolled while trying to turn around.

The driver, carrying 30,000 pounds of mulch, decided to travel up the road even though it was marked as closed, according to a news release from the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.
