Semi Overturns on Jewell City Road 

KENTUCKY  (05/13/2015) – The Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office worked on accident on Wednesday, May 13, 2015 at approximately 7:25 AM on Jewell City Road in Hopkins County.

Sheriff’s Office Deputy LyDon Logan reports that James Wallace was driving a semi carrying approximately 12 tons of black top (rocks) traveling eastbound on Jewell City Road. As he traveled down the roadway, Wallace noticed that the truck was rocking back and forth. At that moment the front passenger tire went off the edge of the roadway.

In an attempt to regain control, Mr. Wallace overcorrected, causing the semi to overturn and spill black top across the roadway.

For several hours the roadway was blocked as local crews cleaned up from the accident.
