I-64 Reopens After Tractor Trailers Collide

Interstate 64 is back open after a crash involving two tractor trailers in Bath County late Tuesday night.

The trucks collided near the Owingsville exit in the westbound lanes.

Police say one trucker felt something come loose in his truck, ran into the median, overcorrected and flipped.

A truck carrying mail then ran into the first truck.

The driver of the mail truck went to the hospital with minor injuries.

The westbound lanes of I-64 were closed for about four hours.

    @Frank Location: Winchester I guess that makes you the (edited) driving 60 on the interstate huh? Most big trucks cant do past 80 on a long straight stretch. SO maybe you need to speed up or stay off.

    I suppose this will be one of the excuses the Winchester Post Office gives me when I call for the hundredth time to complain about not getting my mail. I never send my bills through them anymore, I take them to work with me in Lexington because then I know they will get sent out on time. Winchester's Post Office has been complained about by several people in the area: Magazines getting delivered a month after they come out on the stands, bills showing up the day they are due, packages being delivered empty-the gifts inside somehow disappeared. And the truckers do speed along this stretch of I 64. Winchester PD needs stop the speeding, and someone needs to investigate the Winchester Post Office, seeing as how Citizen's complaints seem to get blown off...

    How many truck accidents along this stretch do we need to have in one week for law enforcement to start cracking down on the big rigs speeding? Ever since the speed limit went up, the biggest speeders have been the trucks. I spend lots of time on the road and they just blow by me on this stretch.
