One dump truck driver found out just how much of a headache it can be when making a wrong turn. The driver was hauling 25 tons of asphalt and turned into the Riverhill Shopping Center parking lot too quickly last night, landing in the ditch and causing traffic issues on HWY 259 for a couple hours.
Edmonson County Director of Emergency Management said traffic was down to one lane for about an hour and a half, with both lanes being shut down for around 30 minutes.
No injuries were reported. Responding to the incident were the Brownsville Fire Department, Brownsville Police, EC Emergency Management, and the District 2 Constable.
