Kentucky cops say big rig involved in chain-reaction crash with three other semis parked on interstate shoulder


The Madison County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) is investigating a four semi truck collision that occurred along a Kentucky interstate early Tuesday morning.

The crash occurred around 2 a.m. on October 17 on I-75.

According to the Lexington Herald-Leader, a tractor trailer driver traveling in the southbound lanes of I-75 at mile marker 95 may have fallen asleep when they struck a second semi truck parked along the shoulder of the interstate. This crash shoved the second truck into a third truck and the third truck into a fourth truck.

WKYT reports that the first truck was the only truck that was not parked when the crash occurred.

Two truck drivers were hospitalized with injuries.

All lanes of southbound I-75 reopened by 8:30 a.m.

This is a developing story.
