HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT) – Kentucky State Police will closed the southbound Twin Bridge for a follow-up crash investigation this Friday.

According to the City of Henderson, the bridge will be shutdown from 9:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.

Traffic will be alternated on the northbound bridge for about five minute intervals during the closure.

Driver’s should use caution and be prepared for stopped traffic as they approach the US 41 Twin Bridges. Extended delays are likely.
 

Earlier this week, one person was killed and another person was injured when their vehicle stalled on the southbound bridge. According to KSP, Joseph Revlett was pushing his car from the rear while his passenger, Casey Thurman, was pushing the driver’s door to help steer the stalled car.

Thurman was taken to the hospital with injuries to her arm, legs and shoulder.

KSP said a truck driven by Arthur Kampf approached the vehicle and ran into the back of it.

Authorities said Kampf was unable to see the stalled vehicle in time.

Kampf was wearing his seatbelt and was not injured.

The investigation is ongoing.

This deadly crash was the first opportunity for emergency agencies to activate the new response plan.

Alternating traffic flow this Friday will help facilitate the crash reconstruction investigation on the southbound bridge.
