STANFORD, Ky. (WKYT) - This morning the snowy roads may have been a contributing factor to an accident in Lincoln County. The driver of a tractor trailer, who was heading into Stanford on US 150, lost control and ran off the road into a ditch.
The driver collided with a utility pole, which knocked out power to several nearby businesses, homes and traffic lights. He was headed to London from Bardstown.
Police say that the driver was blinded by the sun and lost control of the truck, which was empty. The driver escaped unharmed, but the truck was heavily damaged.
