NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A jackknifed tractor-trailer blocked Antioch Pike in south Nashville early Wednesday morning.

It happened near the intersection with Harding Pike around 4 a.m.

Police told News 2 the driver was traveling eastbound on Antioch Pike and used a parking lot to turn around when the semi got stuck.

The turn was too sharp and steep to turn around in and the trailer shifted, nearly tipping over.

Antioch Pike reopened to traffic around 5:30 a.m.
