HAZARD, Ky. (AP) — A rockslide has closed the eastbound lanes of Kentucky 80 near the Knott-Perry county line.

Dispatchers told WKYT-TV (http://bit.ly/12oQx8D) that no one was injured when the rockslide occurred Friday morning, but some motorists were left with flat tires.

Westbound lanes of the highway remained open, but lanes heading from Perry into Knott County are closed.

Highway crews were at the scene, but the station reports it is unclear how long the lanes will be blocked.
