Separate truck crashes close Pike County roads

Three separate truck wrecks have closed Pike County roads.

Kentucky Route 194 at mile marker 46, on top of Big Creek Mountain, was shut down on Monday afternoon. Highway officials say two 18-wheeler trucks overturned in separate crashes within yards of each other. One is a coal truck and one is a tanker truck. There are no spills reported.

An 18-wheeler tanker truck also overturned on Kentucky Route 195 at Dead Man’s Curve, near Wolf Pit.
Highway District 12’s Elmer Keathley said the truck has to be uprighted and moved before the road can re-open.
