2 injured in 10-car crash on I-24
HOPKINSVILLE, KY – Two people were hurt in a 10-car crash on Interstate 24 Friday afternoon in Christian County, Kentucky State Police troopers say.
The wreck happened around 3 p.m. Friday, around the 91 mile marker of I-24. That’s near Fort Campbell exit.
KSP says while a trooper was investigating a one-vehicle crash at that mile marker on I-24 east, a crossover SUV driving through the area lost control, causing a chain-reaction crash when other vehicles in the eastbound lanes were unable to stop.
Troopers say the driver of the SUV and a passenger in that vehicle were the only people injured in the wreck. Emergency responders took them to Jennie Stuart Hospial in Hopkinsville. Troopers say their injuries were not life threatening.
The crash shut down the eastbound lanes of I-24 in the area for about four hours.
