LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A MetroSafe supervisor confirms that the northbound lanes of Dixie Highway in Shively are shut down because of an overturned semi.

Authorities say it happened in the area of Dixie Highway and Herbert Avenue, just north of I-264.

A call about the accident was received Saturday just after 10:30 a.m.

Shively Police tell WDRB that coal was spilled onto the roadway and the area will be closed for at least an hour, while the coal is cleaned up.

MetroSafe says two people were taken to the hospital, but it's not clear if both people were inside the semi. There's no word on the victims' conditions.
