TRIGG COUNTY, Ky. (KFVS) - Interstate 24 westbound at a work zone in Trigg County has been reopened after it was blocked by a crash involving several trucks.

The work zone, from the 65 to the 55 mile marker, was reopened shortly before 10 a.m.

The crash happened shortly after 6 a.m. at the 61 mile marker.

At one time during the interstate lane closure, emergency crews were trying to learn if cattle nearby contributed to the crash.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) said the crash happened at about the same time some cows were herded into a field along the right-of-way of another roadway nearby.

KYTC said early reports show the cows did not roam onto I-24.

Details on what caused the crash or how many trucks were involved has not been released at this time.
