State Police say two accidents a half-mile apart Wednesday had a heavy affect on traffic on I-64 in Bath County.

Crews spent the day cleaning up after troopers say a truck hauling Red Bull drinks crashed around 7:30am.

Ironically, investigators say the energy drink truck driver fell asleep at the wheel.

Troopers say another collision just before 5:00pm involved three cars and closed westbound traffic.

Troopers say two women were hurt.

One was flown to UK Hospital.

No word on her condition.
