Drivers forced to seek detours after dump truck accident

MAYFIELD, KY (KFVS) -

Some drivers had to seek detours on Monday because a dump truck turned over on Powell Road and lost its load.

According to Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon, the truck driven by Dennis Jetton, Jr., dropped off the right shoulder around 1:45 p.m. Jetton lost control and the truck turned onto its side, spilling gravel on the roadway.  

Powell Road was closed while the gravel was cleared from the road, Redmon said.  The road reopened just after 4 p.m.

Jetton, who lives in Sedalia, went to Jackson Purchase Medical Center with minor injuries.
