UPDATE: Versailles Road reopens after tractor-trailer accident

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Versailles Road in Lexington reopened around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday after being closed for more than four hours after a tractor-trailer flipped on its side, according to Lexington Police.

Investigators say the metal cargo in the trailer shifted as the tractor turned from New Circle Road onto Versailles Road, causing it to tip over, blocking the outbound lanes during rush hour.

The road blockage led to a lengthy traffic backup.

Police say the driver wasn’t hurt and no other vehicles were involved.
