The driver of the semi was able to get out of the truck and speak with LMPD and drivers who had stopped to make sure he was OK, MetroSafe said. Officials said the truck was hauling plastic bottles.

The ramp was closed on and off while crews got the truck uprighted and load off the products. A Kentucky Transportation Cabinet spokesman alerted the media at about 5:45 a.m. that the roadway had been unblocked.
