Highway 61 leading into Oliver Springs is closed as cleanup continues from a late-night accident Sunday. A tractor-trailer was struck head on by an oncoming car, left the roadway and overturned down an embankment, spilling its load.
According to Chief Kenny Morgan of the Oliver Springs Police Department, the driver of the car was killed in the accident. The truck driver was treated and released from the hospital.
Traffic continues to be rerouted on Hen Valley Road until the cleanup is complete. That, according to police, should be around 2 p.m. Central Time.
