Officials with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet say crews were not injured when two salt trucks in Muhlenberg County slid off the road and into a ditch this morning.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Muhlenberg County Crew responded to a report of a slick spot on KY 25-51 in the Bremen area of the county.
Officials say as a truck was spreading salt on the slick spot, it slid off the road into a ditch and that another truck that attempted to salt the roadway to allow the first truck to be recovered also slid off in the ditch.
Officials say this is a testament to some of the hazards faced by highway crews out during the early morning hours while they were trying to improve driving conditions for everyone else.
The trucks were recovered and are being repaired so they can return to service.
