A semi truck overturned Wednesday evening around 7:30 p.m. on I-71 north at mile marker 12.5, spilling soda and leaving a pile of debris alongside the interstate.

The driver was transported to University of Louisville with minor injuries. No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

Crews hope to cleanup the area tomorrow (Friday), weather permitting. They will shut down the right-hand lane around mile marker 12 starting at 9 a.m. Both lanes will remain open through morning rush hour.
