Two Trucks Collide On KY 80

It was quite a mess Monday afternoon on a busy eastern Kentucky highway, when a tractor trailer rear-ended a loaded coal truck.

Both trucks were traveling west on highway 80 near the Perry-Knott County line when the driver of a tractor trailer slammed into the back of the loaded coal truck.

Both drivers walked away with no injuries, but it could cost thousands to repair their trucks.

The coal truck lost a good portion of his load and had a broken axle.

The tractor trailer also had major damage.

Police say the driver of that vehicle was not paying attention to the road when the accident happened.

The crash caused a slight traffic delay, but the road remained open.

The state highway department was called in to clear the coal from the road.
