Two Salt Trucks Off the Road in Muhlenberg Co. Earlier Today - 14 News, WFIE, Evansville, Henderson, Owensboro

CATCH 22: What happens when salt trucks could have used a salt truck

Posted: Updated:

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Muhlenberg County Crew responded to a report of a slick spot on KY 2551 in the Bremen area of the county this morning.

As a truck was spreading salt on the slick spot, it slid off the road into a ditch.  Another truck that attempted to salt the roadway to allow the first truck to be recovered also slid off in the ditch.

The attached photo is a testament to some of the hazards faced by highway crews out during the early morning hours while they were trying to improve driving conditions for everyone else. There were no reports of injuries.

The trucks were recovered and are being repaired so they can return to service.
