Crash closes lanes on Owenton Road

State Journal Staff Report, Published:

Owenton Road is back open after a crash slowed traffic this afternoon.

It happened near Cove Spring Park around 2:30 p.m.

Frankfort Police Capt. Robert Warfel said a man was driving his car north on Owenton Road when he tried to make a left turn across the southbound lanes.

He allegedly turned in front of a pickup truck driving south. The truck hit him and pushed his car off the roadway.

The driver of the car was treated on the scene for a minor cut on his face, Warfel said, which was allegedly caused when his airbags deployed.

Warfel said he wasn’t transported to the hospital.

The driver of the truck wasn’t hurt.

Both lanes of southbound Owenton Road were closed while crews cleaned up the crash. Vehicles traveling both directions were funneled through slowly, using just the northbound lanes.
