WAYWARD CONCRETE MIXER CAUSES SEVERAL MINOR WRECKS

Nov, 29 2013


Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton said his office worked multiple non-injury crashes Tuesday evening after a concrete mixer fell out of a pickup truck driving on Interstate 64.

The crashes all happened in the westbound lanes just after 7:45 p.m.

Melton said the mixer was blocking the left lane near mile marker 55, and that’s where three vehicles hit it, sustaining damage ranging from minor to severe.

One of those vehicles, a 2004 Chevy Suburban driven by 31-year-old Jordan Crabtree of Berea, was carrying six children ranging from 2 to 9 years old.

No one was hurt in any of the crashes.

Melton said the driver who lost the concrete mixer was tracked down in Louisville and he said he hadn’t noticed he lost it until he was almost home.

Melton said officers got his insurance information but no charges are expected.
