A drunk driver caused a wreck on I-40 near the Beckwith Road Interchange Sunday. 

According to the Mt. Juliet Police Department, Brandon Johnson, 34, Watertown was headed westbound on I-40. Witnesses said he was driving erratically, and struck the concrete barrier in the center of the interstate. When he did, the front wheel came off, striking another car in the eastbound lanes. Johnson’s car struck another car twice before running off the road into a retention basin. No one was seriously injured. Johnson was treated for a minor injury before going to jail. 

Johnson will appear before a Wilson County Judge Nov. 18 on the charges of Driving Under the Influence.
