CVE Collision on US 51 in Carlisle County
Date of News Release: 07/31/2013
(Hickory, KY.) -- Shannon Presley was traveling south on US 51 in a 2013 Freightliner loaded with 41,000lbs of frozen chicken. Mr. Presley's trailer dropped off the right shoulder of the road and started to shift, causing the truck to jackknife and come to final rest in a cornfield. US 51 was closed to one lane to allow for cleanup and removal of the load, which was deemed spoiled by the US Health Department. Trooper Davis was assisted on scene by Carlisle County Fire and Rescue, US Health Department and Commercial Vehicle Enforcement (a division of the Kentucky State Police).
