FRANKFORT, Ky. (WDRB) -- Three people are dead and one person is hurt after a crash this morning on I-64.

It happened around 6:45 a.m. Wednesday near the Franklin-Shelby County Line. The Franklin County sheriff says a van went off the interstate and hit a tree before catching fire.

One person was taken to the hospital but is expected to survive. 

Investigators say it appears a tire on the van may have blown out, causing the driver to lose control. 

The interstate was closed for several hours while crews cleared the scene.
