According to Louisville Metro Police, four people sustained varying degrees of injury in a multi-vehicle accident on I-265 in Louisville.
Police reported that the pileup involved two semi-trucks, an SUV, and a pick-up truck on Gene Snyder Freeway (I-265). The black semi-truck, which was driven by a 43-year-old man, traveled at a high speed shortly before the accident. Then, the black semi-truck tried to pass the blue semi-truck on the left-hand lane without proper caution, police said.
According to LMPD, the black truck lost control of his vehicle while overtaking the other semi-truck; subsequently, he sideswiped the blue semi. This caused a ripple effect to two other vehicles traveling in the right-hand lane, police added.
There were two occupants each in the two semi-trucks, SUV and the pick-up truck, police said. The occupants of the semi-trucks were not injured, while the other four individuals sustained injuries, EMS reported.
The accident is still under investigation.
Dr. Brian Elias, from The Accident and Injury Team, commented on the crash. “This was a serious multi-vehicle accident on I-265, which resulted in varying degrees of injuries for the four occupants.
