Coal truck spill closes road for hours

A coal truck accident causes quite a mess on a southern Kentucky roadway.

It happened on Kentucky 904 near the 4 mile marker in Williamsburg on Tuesday.

Officers say Eric Harn, 59, of Pennsylvania was going west when the trailer of his coal truck left the roadway and overturned, spilling 48,000 lbs. of coal on the shoulder of the road.

Kentucky 904 was closed for around two hours while the debris was cleaned up.

Harn was not injured.
