A cattle truck overturned along the Pennyrile Parkway in Hopkins County on Friday night.

It took place along the Pennyrile near the I69 and Western Kentucky Parkway Interchange between Nortonsville and Mortons Gap. The roadway was closed for about fours hours overnight Friday.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet said all lanes are back open again. Searchers said they believe a couple of cows are still on the loose, but all cows are off the roadways.
