LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - All lanes of Interstate 64 in Franklin County are back open after a crash involving a commercial vehicle hauling cattle.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet said the crash happened around 7 a.m. near the 51-mile marker, which is west of Frankfort.

State police say a cattle truck tipped over.

Troopers say workers had to cut out each section of the trailer to unload the cattle individually. We’re told the driver of the truck is okay and none of the cows were hurt.

It took crews more than three hours to finally flip the truck and get traffic moving once again. All lanes of the interstate in the area have since reopened.
