Accident Closed Highway

An accident closed an eastern Kentucky highway Wednesday morning.

Whitney Napier says she was sitting at the traffic light on highway 15 Wednesday morning when she saw a coal truck coming through.

Napier then says she watched as the truck swerved and turned over, blocking both northbound lanes.

"I've never been in a wreck like that or seen anything like that it just really scared me to death. I'm just thankful that we're both fine that nothing was really hurt with us it was just his truck," Whitney Napier said.

Police say there were no injuries and the road was back open by Wednesday afternoon.
