Kentucky State Police have released the name of the man injured when his tractor-trailer overturned and pinned him underneath on Poole Mill Road Tuesday morning.
A news release from the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement division says 64-year old Layton Vandervort of Sturgis was westbound about five miles from Crofton when he ran off the left shoulder of the road for an unknown reason and his rig overturned.
Vandervort was reportedly hauling chicken litter and was on his way to Dawson Springs. The Christian County Rescue Squad had to extricate Vandervort from underneath the tractor trailer after his legs were pinned.
Police say he was taken by helicopter to St. Mary’s Hospital in Evansville. The roadway was closed for about three and a half hours.
