Strong Winds Cause Tractor Trailer to Flip on I-65

By Melissa Warren | 

Today's storm proved dangerous for drivers on I-65.

Kentucky State Police say a tractor trailer hit a concrete barrier and slid on its side to the shoulder. This happened on I-65 south near exit 38 at Smiths Grove.

The driver says the strong winds caused him to flip.

"The wheels were up on the right side where the wind was picking the truck up, and I had no where to go. It took me right into it, and when I hit the wall, it put me on my right side and I skidded over to the side of the road," said tractor trailer driver Tim Dixon.

The driver managed to escape the wreck with no injuries.
