TRIGG COUNTY, Ky. (KFVS) - A SEMI crash early Wednesday morning blocked traffic westbound on Interstate 24 in Trigg County, Kentucky.

This was near the 59 mile marker.

The single westbound lane reopened to traffic around 2:55 p.m.

The site is clear.

According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, the truck driver reported he had a tire blowout which caused him to hit the centerline barrier wall in the work zone.

The crash damaged two crash-cushions at an emergency crossover and pushed some of the centerline barrier wall into the eastbound lanes.

The road was closed from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Westbound lanes were then closed so crews could repair the centerline barrier wall.
