Minor injuries, but traffic snarled

A late afternoon crash on I-64 in Simpsonville late Friday afternoon tied up traffic from mile marker 28 into well into Franklin County.

Although the crash scene was cleared fairly quickly, said Kentucky State Police spokesperson Kendra Wilson, the traffic tie up lasted for some time because of the bottleneck effect caused by the crash.

The crash, which yielded only minor injuries, was caused when a tractor trailer jackknifed on the interstate. Wilson said she did not know how many other vehicles were involved.
