The collision of two tractor trailer trucks on I-71 last week closed the interstate for several hours.
The two trucks collided on I-71 around 4 a.m., Thursday, Oct. 1, and resulted in long delays throughout the morning rush hour and beyond.
The driver of a northbound truck, John Hauser of Akron, Ohio, struck a semi that had stopped in the right lane. Hauser’s vehicle rolled over into the median and both vehicles caught fire. Kentucky State Police reported the semi that was stopped had experienced power failure.
