Louisville Metro Police reported a multiple-vehicle crash that started when a Toyota Avalon veered out of it’s lane and struck a trailer truck head-on on I-64.
According to the police report the Toyota Avalon veered out it’s lane as it was passing a vehicle and ran into an oncoming trailer-truck on Interstate 64 near Barklands. The trailer truck tried to brake and ended in a jack-knife position. Immediately after the first collision two other cars and a Sports Utility Vehicle crashed into the truck as well.
EMS was seen at the site of the crash minutes after the incidence happened. The Avalon’s driver, a man in his 20’s, was in critical condition when EMS arrived. Law enforcement did not specify who was injured but some of the victims in the crash only sustained minor injuries while a few were in critical condition. The operator of the traitor truck reportedly sustained only minor injuries on his head and hands.
Seven people were transported to the hospital while three people were treated at the site of the crash.
No other details were released to the public and police are still investigating the crash.
