All lanes of Interstate 40 in Jefferson County have reopened after a fatal accident Friday morning involving a pedestrian and a semi truck.

Officials got the call just after 3:00 a.m.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol tells 10News it happened on I-40W at mile marker 410 in the westbound lanes near the Sevier County line.

Investigators are still working to figure out exactly how it happened. They do not know if the pedestrian was crossing the three-lane highway, or if the semi-truck driver swerved and hit the man.

Troopers say there was a car with New Jersey plates with its flashers on parked on the side of the Interstate.
