By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH, KY - A semi crash on Said Road Tuesday afternoon made a mess and shut down traffic for several hours.
The McCracken County Sheriff’s Office says they got a call around 1 pm about a rollover crash in the 1600 block of Said Rd (KY 131). Deputies said they arrived to find a semi pulling a grain trailer had overturned, spilling grain over the road and into a yard.
Deputies said the driver, 54-year-old Michael Sutton of Hickory was able to climb from the truck prior to emergency crews arrival. Sutton told police that as he started into a sharp curve, he met a pickup truck that was across the centerline and swerved to avoid a collision. The semi then dropped into the ditch on the right side and overturned.
Crews worked for several hours to upright the truck and trailer and remove the spilled grain from the scene.
