LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police believe a heart attack may be what caused a crash that brought I-64E to a standstill Tuesday morning.

The eastbound lanes were shut down just after 8:30 a.m., and a lane of westbound traffic was blocked off near Cannons Lane after the single car crash.

Police say a medical emergency -- possibly a heart attack -- caused the man driving the car to crash.

Police say he didn't suffer any injuries from the crash, but was taken to a hospital in stable condition.
