Driver Escapes Fiery Crash On I-64

A fiery crash on the interstate in Scott County caused a traffic back-up on Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators say a man driving a truck had a coughing spell and lost control while heading east on I-64 near the 69 mile marker.

He crossed into oncoming traffic, then crashed into a tree line and a fence and then overturned. His truck then burst into flames. Fire crews from three agencies responded to the scene and got the fire out out quickly.

The driver was taken to the hospital, but witnesses say it appears he suffered only minor injuries.

The crash shut down one lane of the interstate for a while, but everything is now back to normal.
