According to reports, six vehicles were involved in a pile-up at westbound I-64 and the onramp to I-264. A Ford F-150 rear-ended a car driven by an off-duty sheriff's deputy which started the chain-reaction crash.
The deputy, along with several other victims, was transported by rescue crews to the hospital where they were treated for injuries sustained in the crash. The deputy was taken to the trauma center at University Hospital. He was listed in stable condition.
"Traffic was pretty light," said Shari Tolson, a witness to the crash. "Then I saw all the cars stop and then I saw that car flip over, and then I saw the white truck swerve over and take out that other car."
The early morning Louisville auto accident is still under investigation by local authorities. The exact cause of the crash has yet to be determined.
This is an unfortunate incident, and we would like to wish all the victims a speedy recovery during this difficult time.
