WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News Staff

CARROLL COUNTY, Tenn. - Some drivers in Carroll County had a big headache early Saturday evening. Officials had to close off part of a highway for more than an hour after a train's box car was leaking.

Officials said they had to shut down Highway 79, between McKenzie and Trezevant, so rescue and hazmat crews could secure the leak, and clean up the roadway.

The road was opened back up around 6 p.m.

No workers on board the train were injured.
