Truck crash closes Highway 64 again

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

The familiar curve on State Highway 64 East near Fairfield struck again Monday night.

A Titan Transfer truck ran off the road just north of Fairfield Pike intersection around 6 p.m., ending up in a field and losing much of its load, investigators said.

The driver was not seriously injured, suffering only cuts and bruises.

The truck took down utility lines as it wrecked. Lines were stewn across the roadway, causing complete closure for much of the night as cleanup efforts began.

Traffic resumed -- one lane only -- by sunrise today as a wrecker service removed the truck from the field.
