An 18-wheeler semi-truck and a sedan met in a T-bone collision on Sunday morning at the intersection of West Andrew Johnson Highway and Gap Creek Road.

Numerous emergency responders responded to the scene, blocking westbound traffic in at least one lane until just before 2 p.m.

Emergency responders included the Town of Mosheim Fire Department, the Greeneville Emergency & Rescue Squad, the Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Services, the Greene County Sheriff's Department, and the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

According to Assistant Fire Chief James Foshie, a semi-truck hauling an empty milk tanker was traveling westbound on Andrew Johnson Highway when it was struck in the right front side by a Suzuki Forenza at the intersection with Gap Creek Road.

"The driver of the Suzuki appeared to have failed to stop at a Stop sign at the intersection," Foshie said in an e-mailed statement.

"After striking the passenger side front of the truck, the car spun around and struck the tanker being hauled by the truck.

"The truck, owned by C-N-H Transport of Loudon County, Tenn., swerved left after the collision and ended up in the median of the divided four-lane highway. The truck and tanker remained on its wheels and did not overturn," Foshie said.

"The car came to rest in the parking lot of the BP gas station near the intersection.

"As a result of the collision, one passenger in the car was ejected from the vehicle. The passenger, along with the driver of the car, was transported to a Morristown Hospital for treatment of what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries," Foshie said.

He also noted that a wrecker service from Loudon County removed the truck and tanker from the median.

The accident remains under investigation by the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
