William Walker, was driving a dump truck owned by Triple "S" Professionals LLC of Milltown, down Martinsburg road, loaded down with burnt house scraps.

According to Clark County Sheriff's Major Chuck Adams, Walker told police couldn't stop because he was weighted down.

Walker was trapped under the dash and had to be cut out.

Furnish Towing helped in the extrication by lifting the truck up bit. Borden Fire responded to the scene as well as the Pierce-Polk Fire Department.

Walker was taken by air ambulance to the University of Louisville with possible left arm injuries as well as leg injuries, although the driver was alert and was able to respond to police.
