A tractor-trailer was carrying around 36,000 pounds of food when it crashed on I-64 Thursday morning, according to Franklin County deputies.

Kroger plans on donating all of that food to shelters in Franklin County.

The donations couldn't come at a better time, as shelters in the area have been in dier need of supplies.

Sheriff Pat Melton said the semi's driver may have fallen asleep while we was driving, but was not seriously hurt.
