 LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- One man was killed and several others were injured in a crash involving a van and a semi truck on I-71 South in Oldham County.

It happened just past the Crestwood exit and close to the rest area at the 14 mile marker around 9 o'clock Thursday evening. That's where police say a van rear-ended a tractor-trailer. One person from the van was killed, and nine others were injured.

The names of the victims have not been released.

The southbound lanes were closed for about five hours.
