"This would have been a head-on collision at high speed on the interstate, if it hadn't gotten stopped," said Lexington police Lt. Andrew Daugherty told LEX-18.
There were no injuries, despite an initial report of minor injuries.
The driver was taken to a nearby hospital to receive an evaluation. She was uninjured in the incident, WKYT, the Herald-Leader's reporting partner, reported.
The left lanes of both sides of I-64 were closed for more than two hours while medical responders are on the scene. The interstate was clear around 1 p.m.
In a separate crash around 1 p.m., a northbound rollover crash blocked the right lane of I-75 near mile marker 100, police said. Police said they did not know the extent of the injuries yet, and that the driver lost control of the vehicle.
