Lexington drivers tried to steer clear of Versailles Road Saturday night near the Fayette and Woodford County line.

Traffic was re-routed as crews cleaned up coal and diesel fuel from an accident.

Police say an SUV driver pulled out in front of a semi and crashed into it's gas tank.

Officers say that as fuel spilled out on the road, the semi tipped over and dumped more than 30 tons of coal onto the street.

Police arrested the SUV driver for drunk driving.

They say a female passenger in the semi was taken to the hospital but is expected to be ok.
