The intersection was closed for over an hour during the clean-up process.

On Tuesday morning, a log truck overturned at the intersection of Mulberry Street and North Main Street in Leitchfield, leaving the intersection shut down for over an hour.

According to Leitchfield Police Officer Ian Renfrow, the loaded log truck, owned by High Country Logging out of Millwood and operated by Arlen Coblentz, most likely broke an axel or something in the bed of the truck broke during transit, which caused the load to turn the truck over onto its right side in front of Rough River Pizza Company.

He did not believe the accident was caused due to anything the driver did wrong.

The intersection of Mulberry Street and North Main Street was closed at 10:57 a.m. on Tuesday, but the northbound lane opened back up to commercial and industrial vehicles shortly after. North Main Street was completely opened at 12:19 p.m., but the Mulberry Street entrance remained closed for a while longer.

Leitchfield Police Officer Greg Whobrey said that the utility pole the truck landed against was not damaged, but it would be checked after the truck and logs were removed. None of the nearby power lines appeared to be damaged either, but the road sign for the Mulberry Street/Main Street intersection was broken as a result of the crash.

Other than a minor scrape on his arm, Coblentz was uninjured, and there were no other vehicles or people involved in the accident

Whobrey also stated that another log truck from High Country Logging helped to pick up the logs.

The Leitchfield Fire Department assisted at the scene.
