BARDSTOWN, Ky. (WDRB) -- Westbound lanes of Bluegrass Parkway closed for several hours in Nelson County on Thursday after three people were killed in a head-on crash.  

The crash between a semi and a passenger vehicle happened on the parkway about 11:30 a.m. on Thursday. Nelson County Dispatch supervisor Milt Spalding said two adults and one child were killed. At least one person was injured and taken to the hospital.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet's Chris Jesse said the semi crossed the median into the westbound lanes and hit what he calls a "personal occupancy" vehicle.
