Truck driver injured in traffic accident

LIBERTY - A Clem-entsville man was injured when his truck was hit by a tractor-trailer Wednesday on Ky. 70 West, police said.

Justin Foster, 29, was taken to a Campbellsville hospital, then transferred to a Louisville hospital for pelvic surgery, Casey Deputy Sheriff Chad Weddle said.

It took more than an hour to remove Foster from the wreckage, said Weddle.

"He was lucky to be alive."

Foster was driving a 1995 Chevrolet truck pulling a 16-foot empty cargo trailer when a tractor-trailer driven by Duane Wilson of Columbia slid on the wet pavement and into the path of the Foster truck.

Weddle said Wilson was headed over a steep hill near Clementsville when his truck crossed the center line. The tractor came back in the right lane, but the trailer crossed the yellow line and struck the Foster trailer on the left rear wheel, Weddle said.

The Foster truck, owned by White's Woodworking in Liberty, had extensive damage.

Weddle said the rain and slippery road prevented the tractor-trailer from slowing down on the highway.
