An accident involving a semi ties up traffic for several hours on the Pennyrile Parkway in Hopkins County.
It happened around 5:30 Thursday morning in a construction zone near the 35 mile marker in Mortons Gap.
The Hopkins County Sheriff's Department says the semi driver, Robert Book, moved too far left, causing the truck to go into the median.
The semi was hauling 100 cows for Muller Livestock; about 50 did not survive.
We're told the cows are '4 weights' or yearlings, meaning they weight about 400 pounds each.
The sheriff's department says the driver is okay.
