Police said a tractor trailer caused a Cedar Springs man to swerve off the highway into a rock wall on Thursday morning. Reports said that Shannon Hennion, 40, was driving a Dodge pickup with a trailer on KY HWY 259 in the Pig Community when he attempted to turn onto Park Boundary Rd near Porky Pig Diner.
Police said that as Hennion attempted to turn, a Reinhart semi pulled out from Park Boundary Road into Hennion's path, forcing him off the road and into a rock wall. The trailer he was pulling jack-knifed, which caused damage to the rear of the pickup as well.
Icy roads didn't help matters, but luckily no injuries were reported. Sheriff Shane Doyle said there were several cars that had slipped off county roadways during the recent snow, but that no serious injuries were reported. He urged drivers to use extreme caution during the icy conditions and to allow plenty of time when traveling.
