(Madisonville, Ky.) -- John Barnett was operating a 2002 Kenworth Truck pulling a trailer loaded with gravel. Mr. Barnett stated he met a log truck on his side of the road in a curve. When he steered right to avoid striking the log truck, his tires dropped off the right shoulder of the roadway causing him to lose control. The truck then struck the guardrail and overturned on its right side where it came to final rest. Mr. Barnett was transported to Muhlenberg Community Hospital for minor injuries.
