(Leitchfield, KY) An early morning accident in North Leitchfield left a section of KY 259 closed for most of the day today. Around 3:30 this morning, a tractor trailer carrying a load of sawdust was travelling North on Brandenburg Rd when it overturned at the intersection of Hanging Rock Road on the Eastern side of the highway, spilling the contents of the trailer.
A spokesperson on scene said the accident didn’t appear to be weather related. The highway remained closed through rush hour and at mid-day, Kentucky Department of Transportation crews worked to remove debris from the scene. During the road closure, traffic was detoured onto Charlie Kiper Road.
