Downed wires blocked US 62 in McCracken County

Posted: Updated:

Downed wires caused traffic to be re-routed on US 62 Saturday morning.

Around 9:30 a.m. Saturday, deputies were dispatched with McCracken County Rescue Units to the area of US 62 between Olivet Church Road and McCracken Blvd. for a non-injury vehicle collision, and wires on the roadway.

According to the sheriff's office, a pickup truck was pulling a utility trailer with a large piece of baseball sports equipment on it. The equipment caught a cable and fiber optic lines near the end of the four-lane section of US 62.

McCracken County Rescue Units detoured traffic for around two hours while crews from Comcast Cable cleared the lines.

It's unknown what services were and/or still may be interrupted.

Drivers detoured around or through Information Age Park in McCracken County.
