LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say one man is dead after a fatal crash that took place on southbound I-65 near Broadway Friday morning.
According to Louisville Metro Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell, the cash happened at around 9:30 a.m.
Mitchell says that the driver of a Toyota Camry was driving in the right-hand southbound lane, when, without explanation, that driver lost control of the vehicle and collided with the back wheels of a semi tractor trailer.
As a result, a rear seat passenger was ejected from the Camry. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the Toyota and a passenger in the front seat were not injured. The driver of the tractor trailer was also uninjured.
No charged are expected, according to Mitchell.
For a time, all southbound lanes of I-65 near St. Catherine Street were shut down as a result of the crash. As of 11 a.m., one lane had reopened. Metrosafe dispatchers say the public should expect lane closures in that area as the investigation unfolds.
