Multiple vehicle accident shut down US 41/45 for hours
All lanes are open after a deadly accident shut down both US-41 and US-45 for hours. A semi truck, pick up truck and two other vehicles crashed on US-45 around 11:45 a.m. The multiple vehicle accident took the life of one person and injured one person.
Police say construction in that area played a role. Germantown Police Chief Peter Hoell says, \"When the traffic came to a stop, we believe the utility vehicle took evasive maneuvers, crossed the center line of US-41 into northbound traffic striking a semi tractor trailer that was fully loaded.\"
The identity of the driver who was killed has yet to be released. Two other motorists involved in that accident were not hurt.
