UPDATE: According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, the scene has been cleared.

But one lane remains closed due to long-term construction.


A tractor trailer carrying poultry turned over on Natcher Parkway near Russellville Road early Tuesday afternoon.

The semi-truck veered off of the road, overturning onto the median.

As the truck landed on its side, chicken spilled onto parts of the opposite lane.

The driver claims he was avoiding a vehicle that had pulled out of a construction zone in front of him.

The driver of the truck was uninjured.

Parts of the parkway are still blocked off and it is unclear how long the blockage will continue.
