SULLIVAN COUNTY, Tenn. -

An early morning accident could impact commutes.  Sullivan county dispatchers tell News 5, a tractor trailer accident blocked Piney Flats Road at Huffman Hill Road, near the railroad tracks, around four o'clock Thursday morning.

We're told, the tractor trailer appears to have jack-knifed and the trailer overturned.  No one is hurt but, dispatchers say, the road is completely blocked.

Crews were expected to be on the scene for a while.

Drivers who have to travel through that area, are encouraged to find another route.
