One person died and at least 2 people are in critical condition in a multi-vehicle crash on I-71 eastbound near Brownsboro Road.
A semi truck and two cars were involved in the fatal crash. A navy blue sedan traveling on Interstate 71 towards Crestwood lead to a three-vehicle crash that injured several travelers. Three were reported to be severely injured at the scene. Others involved in the crash sustained light injuries. One was reported dead.
The wreck occurred near Brownsboro overhead bridge crossing over I-71 in Louisville.
The Kentucky Highway Patrol says the car was travelling east when the front tire flew off the car. The driver struggled to take control of the car before it swerved off the right lane into the passing lane. It was hit by an oncoming semi truck on the driver side. The driver of the semi truck tried to swerve but it eventually struck the car. A minivan behind the semi-truck ran into the crash.
First emergency responders arrived at the site of the crash soon after the accident occurred. While three people were severely injured, the extent of the injuries of the other 4 victims were not known. It was reported that they had back pain and other injuries. The victims have all been transported to the hospital for treatment.
