Westbound I-24 Down To One Lane In Trigg County

CREATED Mar 11, 2014

CADIZ, Ky. – A crash involving two semi-trailer trucks has left debris along the roadway on Interstate 24 in Trigg County, Kentucky. At least one westbound lane has been closed.

The crash happened around 2 p.m. Tuesday at the 65 mile marker near the town of Cadiz, about 20 miles west of Hopkinsville.

Officials said they believed one of the trucks may have rear-ended the other.

Keith Todd with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet said one truck was hauling steel cable. The other was hauling rolled steel. Both loads were scattered along the interstate for what he said was "some distance."

At least one westbound lane was closed while officials investigated the crash and crews worked to clear the interstate.

Traffic was moving through the area, but Todd said delays were possible. Drivers were advised to use caution when traveling on the roadway to avoid hitting debris.

It was estimated to take around four hours to clear the area due to the amount of material that had to be recovered.

There were no reports of any injuries.
