Semi crash on I-65 scatters hot dogs, no injuries reported

In the early hours of April 19, a semi truck hauling hot dogs crashed on I-65 in downtown Louisville, Kentucky, causing quite the commotion.

Here's what happened: Around 1 a.m., the semi collided with a barrier wall on I-65. The impact was so intense that it tore the trailer apart. The back portion flipped onto the road below, and hot dogs were strewn across the lanes.

No one was injured in the crash, and all lanes near the I-64 and I-71 interchanges were closed until about 8:30 a.m. while crews cleaned up the mess according to WDRB.

What drivers need to know: After clearing the accident, the ramps were reopened, and traffic has since returned to normal flow in that area.

The reason the semi hit the wall, causing the crash, is not yet known.
