It was like a scene from a movie.

Robert Brockman, from Dayton Kentucky, said he was traveling on the AA Highway in Wilder passed the McDonald's when he looked up an saw smoke billowing from about a quarter of a mile away.

"We came around the corner and it was there. (The crash) had just happened. So you know me I have to get close," he said.

Brockman captured pictures of a fiery crash involving a tractor-trailer and a car that sent one person to the hospital and shut down highway on January 25.

The vehicles collided on the AA Highway near Town Drive at about 1 p.m. Both vehicles caught fire.

Brockman said he believes he know what happened.

"The car ran a red light and hit the (tractor-trailer) and it exploded," he said. Brockman also said he believe both drivers were okay, but no official word from Wilder Police has been issued.

The northbound lanes reopened at about 2:30 p.m. It took nearly another hour to clear the southbound lanes.

  1. Way too much of this everywhere in regards to running red lights, trying to beat the light, etc. If you are the lead car and you slow down for the light, other cars will jerk over to the other lane if there is one to speed up and get through the light. Can't be inconvenienced with having to stop for a minute I guess. Police need to watch for this and ticket for it.

  2. What does this have to do with Ft. Thomas as a city?
