Another dump truck crash

The second dump truck crash of the day will likely keep traffic backed up on US 60 West until at least 3:30pm this afternoon. One lane is open and traffic is moving slowly through the area.

The crash happened at the intersection of Old Salem Road just west of the hospital. A dump truck hauling sand or rock dust apparently couldn't stop in time for traffic turning from US 60 onto the side road and overturned. Tons of sand spilled into the inspection.

The driver of the dump truck was conscious and alert but was taken to Crittenden Hospital by ambulance.

Another dump truck overturned into a creek on Ky. 365 near Baker Church earlier today. Recovery personnel were still at that site when this crash happened.
