LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- One person is dead after a crash Monday evening involving a minivan and tractor-trailer on I-64 East in downtown Louisville.

LMPD spokesperson Dwight Mitchell says crews responded to the scene near the 3rd Street exit around 6:30 p.m. 

Police say a Dodge minivan slammed into the back of a stalled semi. The driver of the minivan was pronounced dead at the scene. The victim's identity was not immediately released. 

Three children were also in the van and were taken to Kosair Children's Hospital with minor injuries. 

LMPD's Traffic Unit is investigating, but Mitchell says it doesn't appear charges will be filed.
