Two Car Accident On East Main St.

An accident on the 500 block of E Main St. in Louisville had traffic backed up all the way to the center of town this morning (Tuesday, October 20.) At approximately 6:08 a.m., an 18-wheeler and a 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche were involved in an accident at the intersection of E. Main and Hight.

First reports indicate that the Avalanche pulled out of Hight Avenue in front of the truck which then jackknifed and ruptured the fuel tank of the truck. This caused a diesel fuel spill along E. Main which required traffic to be stopped for a period of time. The accident caused moderate injuries to the driver and passenger in the Avalanche. They were taken to Winston Medical Center for treatment. The driver of the 18-wheeler received a few cuts and bruises.
