SCOTT COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — A driver has been arrested following a crash that shut down all northbound lanes and all but one southbound lane of I-75 on Wednesday morning.
The tractor trailer was carrying scrap metal and officials tell LEX 18 that the driver tried to make a sharp right turn and fell over.
The scrap metal went across the roadway and that is why most lanes were closed. Traffic on southbound I-75 was backed up for nearly 12 miles.
The driver was arrested on suspicion of a DUI.
The road has since reopened.
