One Lane Of U.S. 23 Is Closed After Accident

One lane of U.S. 23 in Lawrence County is still closed, after an accident involving two coal trucks Monday evening.

Officials tell us that a coal truck was heading southbound when somehow the bed of the truck began raising, then caught on power lines.

The truck then veered into the northbound lane, hitting another coal truck that was headed in the opposite direction.

That truck also managed to get tangled in power lines.

Right now some parts of the area are without power, and crews will be out all night trying to repair the lines.

The northbound lanes have been reopened.
