Posted: Updated:

A section of the Pennyrile Parkway is back open after a semi overturns early Friday morning.

It happened around 3:00 near exit 78 on the Pennyrile Parkway in Henderson.

Police tell us the driver was headed north and overturned into the southbound lanes.

The driver of the semi was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The truck was carrying plastic pellets.

The southbound lanes of the Pennyrile were closed from exit 78 to exit 81 until around 6 a.m. so crews could work.

The semi has been towed away and traffic is moving.

No word yet on the cause of the accident.
