Flying Scrap Metal Involved In Madisonville, Kentucky Accident

There was a scary injury accident in Madisonville, Kentucky involving a piece of scrap metal that flew off a truck and struck another vehicle.

Mark Tucker was hauling a load of scrap metal on a flatbed trailer behind a Ford F150 north on the Pennyrile Parkway. Scottie Sacre was behind Mr. Tucker in a 1999 Buick Park Avenue.

Mr. Tucker lost control of the truck and trailer and struck the guardrail on the east side of the road. The truck then crossed both lanes and entered the median causing it to jackknife. The truck rolled onto its passenger side dumping the contents of the truck and trailer onto the parkway. A piece of the scrap metal from the truck struck Mr. Sacre’s vehicle causing minor damage.

Both, Mr. Tucker and his passenger, Michael Wells, were transported to Regional Medical Center for treatment. It is unclear whether Mr. Sacre was injured in the wreck.
