Early Tuesday morning on May 7, 2013, a Covington truck accident occurred that involved a semi tractor trailer. According to reports, this Northern Kentucky trucking accident took place on southbound Interstate 71/75 at the Cut in the Hill.
Officials stated that the truck crash happened about 4:25 a.m. The wreck caused the semi truck to jackknife, spilling fuel onto the roadway. Because of this fuel leak and accident clean up, officials had to close the roadway at Cut in the Hill for a couple hours.
The entire interstate was closed in this area for over two hours to clean up the spill and move the truck over to the right shoulder. Early morning commuters were stuck in traffic until the roads were reopened right before 7:00 a.m.
Not only did this crash cause traffic to come to a halt, but it was responsible for injuring two people. However, officials have not released any information at this time about who was injured and their conditions.
The next day, another semi truck jackknifed on Wednesday afternoon at the Cut in the Hill northbound I-71/75. According to officials, the wreck took place around 12:20 p.m. just north of Kyles Lane. The interstate was once again shut down, but this time it was only for half an hour, and no injuries were reported in this trucking accident.
Our Northern Kentucky accident attorneys at the Law Office of Schachter, Hendy & Johnson would like to wish those injured in this trucking accident full and fast recoveries.
