Tennessee Highway Patrol is in charge of two crash investigations. One occurred today on Interstate 75 and the other was reported late Wednesday evening.

According to 911 reports, a vehicle left the roadway on I-75 just before 8 this morning and overturned into a ditch.

First responders rushed to the scene near mile-marker 17. The area is known for vehicles to hydroplane during heavy rain, causing drivers to leave the roadway. No injuries were reported, according to 911.

Just before 9 p.m. Wednesday, a single vehicle crashed at 6266 Mouse Creek Road. Four people were inside the vehicle.

Cleveland Police Chief Wes Snyder’s wife, Melissa, alerted 911 of the crash.

According to Snyder, the four victims had been visiting area residents for their church.

Reports noted all four people were transported to area hospitals for treatment, but their conditions were not available.

Aiding at the crash scenes were Bradley County Emergency Medical Service, Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, Charleston Police Department and Bradley County Fire-Rescue.
