Traffic is now moving again along Leestown Road after a crash brought things to a halt in two counties.

The crash happened in Scott County at the Fayette County line early Friday morning.

Traffic on both sides was at a standstill while emergency crews tried to upright and move a tractor trailer that overturned after colliding with a car.

Police say a red GMC Pickup truck crossed the center line before three Friday morning and hit a UPS tractor-trailer.

The truck overturned, trapping an injured driver inside. That driver was airlifted to the UK Hospital; police have not released his name or what his condition is.

The two people in the pickup were ok.

There was a diesel fuel spill following the wreck. Crews worked for nearly eight hours to clean up the accident.
