WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (AP) -- State police say both directions of Interstate 75 in southeastern Kentucky have reopened.
Police closed the interstate after a crash involving a truck carrying cattle.
The crash occurred before dawn Wednesday in the northbound lanes of I-75 in Whitley County, near the 22 mile marker near the Tennessee state line.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reported cattle roaming the interstate caused additional accidents before the Kentucky State Police closed the highway.
No serious injuries had been reported, but several cattle had been killed.
State police dispatcher Les Leatherman at the London post said the lanes reopened about 9 a.m. EDT.
