(MITCHELL) - A Campbellsburg man suffered minor injuries after he lost control of the dump truck he was driving on US 50 West on Monday.

According to a Lawrence County Sheriff's Department report, 32-year-old Lonnie W. Pruett Jr. was traveling west on US 50 West when he started to lose control of the 2007 Mack CV Series truck owned by Shelby Trucking of Mitchell, on the wet roadway.


The dump truck went off the north side of the road striking the end of the guardrail and then continued traveling west tearing out several feet of the guardrail before rolling over and spilling gravel on the highway.

The truck came to a stop in an upright position with the rear of the dump truck resting on the guardrail on the south side of the highway.

The highway was closed while crews cleaned up the spilled gravel and made some repairs to the guardrail.

The truck came to rest in the upright position with the rear end on the guardrail on the south side of the bridge.

Pruett suffered a bruise to his head and was taken by ambulance to a local hospital for treatment.
