The driver was able to partially bring it back under control but traveled across three lanes of the freeway, crashed through the guard rail, crossed four lanes of heavy traffic on the feeder, and crashed into Papas BBQ Restaurant in Oak Ridge North. The driver suffered minor injuries. The driver of the vehicle that struck it suffered minor injuries. No other vehicles were struck. South Montgomery County Fire Department responded and requested Woodlands HAZMAT to dam up the leaking diesel fuel. The restaurant was closing for the evening and employees were prepping inside for tomorrow.
