HENDERSON, Ky. (12/13/17) — A strong wind gust was to blame for a three-vehicle accident that shut down U.S. 60 West for two hours this afternoon.

The Henderson County Sheriff's office was called to a pick-up vs semi collision in the 10,000 block of U.S. 60 West just after noon today.

When deputies arrived on scene, they found an F-350 pickup overturned down an embankment. A semi and Kia were involved as well. The F-350 driven by Michael Lane, 30 of Utica, was headed eastbound on US 60 past Corydon-Geneva Road, when he met a tractor-trailer driven by Klint Gernattage, 31 of Clay, pulling a trac-hoe traveling west, HCSO reported.

Lane told authorities, as he was meeting the semi, a strong gust of wind pushed him toward the semi, causing his vehicle to strike the trac hoe that peeled off the left front fender and door. He lost control and continued down the embankment and overturned.

The KIA Forte driven by Amanda Gibson, 21 of Morganfield, was behind the F-350 when the collision happened, deputies said. Gibson ran over the debris that spilled out of the Ford truck causing damage to her vehicle.

The roadway was closed for approximately two hours while debris was cleared. Agencies that responded to assist were Corydon Fire Department, Smith Mills Fire Department, Henderson City-County EMS, Henderson Rescue Squad, Kentucky Transportation Department, and Commercial Vehicle Enforcement.

No one was reported injured as a result of the incident.
