Bradfordsville, KY — The driver of a log truck was injured and sent to the hospital last Thursday (September 24, 2015) after an accident along Merrimac Road in the Bradforsville area of Taylor County. Right now, not many details are being released, but the trucker’s name was reportedly Gleason Dudley, 68 years old.
The accident happened on Merrimac Road, when Dudley’s log truck appears to have swerved off the right side of the road, then over-corrected.
After his truck steered back onto Merrimac Road, it flipped over and spilled the logs all over the roadway. As a result, Mr. Dudley was injured and had to be taken to a hospital.
At the last update, he had been treated for a broken arm, dislocated shoulder, and other injuries. It’s not clear what caused his log truck to overturn in the first place, though, and there’s been no mention as to whether an investigation into the truck itself will be done. Sometimes, mechanical errors and problems can cause trucks to lose control.
