MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. (KFVS) - Westbound Interstate 24 is open at the 10.3 mile marker after a crash involving a semi hauling granite.

According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, the westbound entry ramp at the KY 1954/Husbands Road Paducah exit 11 interchange is also open.

While traffic was blocked for a vehicle fire on Friday morning at the 8 mile marker, they said a secondary crash caused a semi truck to spill a load of granite.

KYTC said they were told a secondary, side-swipe crash caused the load to roll off of the semi and onto the roadway and median around the 10.3 mile marker.

There was an estimated 40,000 pounds of granite scattered along the road and in the median at the crash site.

Now, the site is clear and all lanes are open.
