McCRACKEN Co, Ky -

A man driving a truck and pulling a camper on I-24 lost control Saturday afternoon causing a backup for about two hours.

McCracken County deputies say Todd Nelson, 51, of West Paducah, was driving a GMC Sierra eastbound while towing a camper.  Deputies say he was trying to pass a slow moving car in the outside lane when the camper started to sway.

Nelson lost control and overturned the camper and truck.  Parts of the interstate, near mile marker 8, were closed for debris cleanup.

Nelson and his teenage daughter were taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries. 

I-24 is now reopen.
