Owensboro Bypass Ramps Closed: May Not Reopen until Friday Night

Expect delays throughout Friday near the Owensboro Bypass. That's because a semi accident will likely keep the westbound ramps both on and off the Bypass closed for most of the day.
Expect delays throughout Friday near the Owensboro Bypass.  That's because a semi accident will likely keep the westbound ramps both on and off the Bypass closed for most of the day.

The accident happened early Friday morning.  Daviess County officials tell Eyewitness News a semi ran off the road, through a guardrail and down a hill.  That semi is now leaking fuel and cleanup is expected to take much of the day.  We're told the rams could be closed into tonight.

No word on the extent of injuries but our crew on the scene says the driver of the semi was alert and talking to authorities.  We will bring you updates on this developing story throughout the day.
