Bread

HENDERSON, Ky. (1/12/18) — Cleanup continues on the U.S. 41 northbound twin bridge this morning due a tractor-trailer fire that broke out around 2:30 a.m.

A lot of bread and debris from the Lewis Bakery tractor-trailer was all over the road. Crews are working to get one lane open.

The north lanes were still closed at 6 a.m. as first responders worked at the scene. Henderson County Sheriff’s Office reported the driver lost traction on the slippery pavement, making several attempts to climb the icy road along the bridge, when the truck caught fire.

Henderson City Fire Department responded to extinguish the flames. Traffic was backed up all the way to the Audubon Parkway. Semis have been idle so long that their brake lines have frozen and they cannot move their trucks, Deputy Stefon Douglas said.

Highway officials reported they plan to open at least one lane on the bridge soon.
