LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A large cooking grease spill caused major traffic delays in the southbound lanes of I-65 on the Kennedy Bridge Wednesday.

According to MetroSafe, several southbound lanes were closed after a truck traveling southbound hit the bridge wall. The crash, which took place just before 12:45 p.m., caused the truck to spill a load of grease on the bridge.

A MetroSafe supervisor said injuries were reported, but there is no word on the extent of the injuries.

Traffic was already backed up at that location due to lane closings for emergency repairs taking place south of St. Catherine Street in downtown Louisville.

The cleanup was expected to be completed sometime Wednesday evening. All lanes reopened around 6:30 p.m.
