WICKLIFFE, KY - Thursday's wreck near the Cairo-Wickliffe Bridge on Highway 51 included a fatality.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet was forced to close US 51/60/62 in Ballard County between Wickliffe and the Ohio River Bridge because of a multi-vehicle crash involving a van, pickup truck, and heavy-duty commercial vehicle. The commercial vehicle equipped with a man-lift rolled onto its side on the right shoulder of the highway after the collision.
The road was closed for about 4 hours for rescue, clean-up, and reconstruction of the accident.
