One person was killed in a collision between a semi and a car in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 64 in Carter County at the KY 1704 underpass at mile marker 158 Friday afternoon.
The accident happened at about 3 p.m. All eastbound I-64 traffic was being detoured at Exit 156 along KY 2 to US 60 east to return to I-64 at Exit 161.
So far, there is no word on which vehicle had the fatality, or what caused the accident, though wet roads at the time is considered a factor.
Westbound traffic was unaffected, however, motorists should drive with caution. Emergency responders remained on the scene Friday afternoon.
