A two-vehicle crash in the northbound lanes of Interstate 65 near the 108-mile marker in Bullitt County resulted in one person being transported to a Louisville hospital and traffic being re-routed on Ky. 61 to Clermont.


Dallas G. Hogan, 51, of Brandenburg, was injured and transported to University Hospital in Louisville when the trailer truck he was operating struck the rear of another trailer truck being driven by Mahad M. Ahmed, 36, of Minneapolis. Ahmed was experiencing trouble with his truck and had slowed and was attempting to merge into the emergency lane when the crash occurred.

The wreckage blocked at least two lanes of the northbound side of I-65 and traffic was re-routed while emergency and wrecker crews cleared the scene.

Ahmed was not injured in the accident and an investigation is being conducted by KSP.
