LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Northbound I-65 traffic is flowing again after a major accident Sunday night on the shut down all but one lane of traffic.

Louisville Metro Police said the accident happened after a minivan broke down in the slow lane around 9:20 p.m. The driver was trying to push the van when another vehicle approached from behind. The driver jumped out of the way to safety, but the minivan was rear-ended.

A woman passenger inside the disabled van was rushed to University Hospital. She was in critical condition late Sunday night with life-threatening injuries.

While the accident was being investigated, only the far left lane of northbound I-65 on the Kennedy Bridge remained open. MetroSafe said the accident scene was cleared around 3 a.m. Monday.
