Interstate 26 has been reopened after an early Wednesday morning accident.

Kingsport dispatch tells News 5 it happened around 1:20 a.m. near mile marker 7.6. We're told a tractor trailer overturned, and that caused both eastbound lanes to be closed.

Dispatch says the driver was taken to the hospital, but there's no word on that person's condition.

The interstate was shut down for about three hours as crews worked to clean up the crash.

An investigation into what happened continues, and we will bring you more facts as they're available.
