KY 723 near Salem closed after semi overturns

SALEM, KY (KFVS) -

KY 723 is closed after a semi truck hauling soybeans overturned Tuesday afternoon.

This is at the first "S" curve heading south from Salem.

Due to the spilled grain and spilled diesel fuel it is likely to take up to four hours to clear the site, according to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

The driver said someone forced him off the road on a curve.

No injuries have been reported.

A detour for passenger vehicle traffic is via Shelby Store Road to Kitchen Road or via Hodge Road.
