LIVINGSTON COUNTY, Ky. (KFVS) - An overturned SEMI blocked one westbound lane of Interstate 24 in Livingston County for several hours on Tuesday, November 23.

The crash happened near the 31 mile marker during the 5 p.m. rush hour.

Emergency management services reported the crash was mainly in the median.

According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC), the SEMI was hauling mouthwash which had to off-loaded in order for crews to remove the rig.

The crash site was cleared and all lanes of I-24 westbound were reopened at approximately 9:30 p.m.

As crews were cleaning up the mess, traffic was detoured off at the U.S. 62 Calvert City Exit 27 interchange because of a crash blocking the eastbound lanes of I-24 near the 27 mile marker.

Eastbound traffic was also detoured east along U.S. 62.
