Truck Runs into Median on I-24 Near Calvert City
By WestKyStar Staff
CALVERT CITY, KY - A semi tractor-trailer ran into the median on I-24/I-69 near the Purchase Parkway Interchange at Calvert City, causing traffic restrictions for a couple of hours.

Marshall County Sheriff's Department reports that 45-year-old Rita C. Parson of Madisonville was on the exit ramp when her tractor trailer started to slide around. She overcorrected and lost control, and the truck went into the median on I-24 and struck the back of the guardrail for the westbound lanes.

No injuries were reported at the scene.

Recovery of the truck required lane restrictions in both directions at Exit 25.
