tractor trailer 300HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (3/6/13) – On March 6, 2013 at approximately 3:37 AM, Hopkins County Central Dispatch received a report of a single semi-tractor trailer collision, involving injuries, on Interstate 69 at the 104 mile-marker.
 
The driver of the semi, Michael Avery, stated that he was traveling northbound when a deer entered his travel portion. The driver swerved to miss the deer, and entered the median.

The semi struck a guardrail then continued to travel down an embankment on the West side of the roadway. The trailer blocked both southbound lanes of Interstate 69 for approximately two hours.
