Boil water advisory issued

BIG BRANCH, Ky. (WYMT) - Folks in the Big Branch area from Viper to Joe's Hardware in Perry County need to boil their water.

This after a tractor trailer lost control, flipped into a ditch and broke a water line on Route 7.

It happened around 9:30am Monday morning and crews spent most of the day removing the truck from the ditch.

Officials shut down the road for hours and detoured traffic.

Perry County Sheriff's Deputies say only one vehicle was involved in the crash.

“When I responded on the scene, the driver was transported to the hospital via personal vehicles for minor injuries,” Deputy Shawn White said.

Some homes in the area were without water for a few hours.

Officials expect the boil water advisory to last for a couple of days.
