HOPKINS CO., KY (WFIE) - One person was flown to the hospital after their semi overturned in Hopkins County.

It happened on the ramp from the Western Kentucky Parkway westbound onto the Pennyrile Parkway southbound

Kentucky State Police say 46-year-old Derrel Berry, of Clarksville, TN, was driving the semi when he exited the shoulder of the roadway and hit a road sign. Troopers say the semi continued into a ditch where it overturned onto the driver’s side and hit another road sign.

We’re told Berry had to be extricated from the vehicle and was flown by PHI Air Medical to Vanderbilt for treatment.

Both southbound and westbound lanes of the Pennyrile were shut down while crews worked the scene.
