I-65 North Lanes in Hart County Cleared Following Early Morning Wreck

Update at 10:15 a.m.:

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has given the all-clear following Thursday morning's accident on I-65 in Hart County.

All lanes and the exit ramp of Northbound I-65 are open at Exit 71 in Hart County following a multi-commercial vehicle and personal vehicle crash that occurred around 4 a.m. central.

Original post:

An early morning wreck on I-65 north in Hart County has reduced the interstate to one lane. The accident involving a multi-commercial vehicle and personal vehicle took place around 4 a.m. local time.

As a result, the Bonnieville exit is blocked. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet reports that motorists needing to access US 31-W should use Exit 65 (Munfordville) and then proceed north on US 31-W. With morning traffic increasing, the queue is extending.

Minor delays may be possible. Both lanes should be re-opened in 1-2 hours.
