The Kentucky State Police responded to the 68 mm east

bound on Louie B Nunn Cumberland Parkway that involved an overturned tractor

trailer.

 

Preliminary investigation shows that around 2:00 pm on Tuesday afternoon the

driver Scottie Castle of Somerset, Ky. was traveling east on Cumberland Parkway

when he lost control of his vehicle causing it to go off the road down into ditch.

As the truck began to come back up on roadway the load shifted causing the truck

and trailer to overturn.

 

Mr. Castle was entrapped and had to extracted from the vehicle by the Russell

Spring Fire Department. Stat Flight was on scene, however Mr. Castle refused

treatment from Stat Flight and was transported to Russell County Hospital by EMS.

He was later treated and released with minor injuries.

 

The roadway was shut down for about 5 hours while the truck, trailer, and load

were removed from the scene.
