Semi crash snarls traffic on I-65N near Eastern Parkway

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Traffic is moving again after a semi crashed into a barrier in the northbound lanes of Interstate 65 Monday.

It happened about 1:15 p.m. near the Eastern Parkway exit. That's where the semi struck the median and was partially blocking the southbound lanes.

The semi was leaking fuel and a Level 1 HazMat situation was declared while crews cleaned up the spill.

Northbound and southbound traffic was at a standstill for about two hours, and one northbound lane was still closed while crews worked to remove the wrecked semi.
