Original post:

The eastbound lanes of the Western Kentucky Parkway at mile marker 65 are open Friday morning following a commercial vehicle crash.

Both westbound lanes, however, will likely remain closed until 9:00 a.m. The accident took place at the Muhlenberg-Ohio County line, and involved a truck loaded with plywood crashing into the end of a bridge.

We'll update this post as soon as more information becomes available.
