The Henderson County Sheriff’s Office says a car stalled and stopped near the middle of the bridge. A semi tried to avoid hitting the vehicle, but was unable to, the sheriff’s office says.

According to the release, the collision caused the stalled car to spin around and the semi drove on top of the vehicle for about 300-feet.

A few minutes after 7:30 a.m., the northbound Twin Bridge was reopened.
