The Henderson County Coroner has been called to a crash on KY 425 that closed the road in both directions at mile marker 0.45.

The call to the coroner's office came in just before 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday.

According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC), the crash is between U.S. 41-A and U.S. 60 and involves a commercial vehicle and a car.

Around 2:00 p.m., officials estimated the closure to last for about three hours, until approximately 5:00 p.m. - though KYTC announced the road had reopened around 3:40 p.m.
