SHEPHERDSVILLE - A dumptruck lost a load of gravel along N. Buckman Street Wednesday afternoon.


The truck tailgate released in front of The Pioneer News and Standard Publishing offices, causing gravel to spill onto N. Buckman, primarily in the southbound lane.

The truck continued southbound along N. Buckman through Shepherdsville. It was eventually stopped by Shepherdsville Police units near Highway 480.

The N. Buckman southbound lane was covered with the loose gravel from Adam Shepherd Parkway to W. Blue Lick Road.

State road crew employees removed the gravel and hauled it away. The roadway was reopened at 1:30 p.m.
