TRIGG COUNTY, Ky. (KFVS) - The work zone at the 60mm on Interstate 24 has reopened following a crash involving two SEMIs.

The roadway was reopened at 11:50 p.m. on Tuesday, September 28.

According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, two SEMI trucks were involved in a rear-end crash shortly after 9 p.m., which blocked the work zone.

Crews were able to pull one of the rigs out, but the second truck was disabled and needed a wrecker to remove it from the scene.

In addition to the wrecked trucks, KYTC said there was a significant amount of oil and diesel fuel that is spilled onto the road. This took crews some additional work and time to cleanup.
