A gas tanker from White Oil Company in Campbellsville, KY, has overturned across from the Knifley Fire Department, according to information requested from Laurie Coleman at nearby Patterson's Bait and Grocery.


Coleman said that first responders are on the scene and that Elkhorn Road/KY 76 is blocked and that several first responders are on the scene.

Coleman said that while Patterson's Bait is supplied by White Petroleum, she didn't think the loaded truck was bound for Patterson's. "We are due for a shipment," she said.

CM & The Big Dawg have not received word as to the tanker size or if injuries were incurred in the accident.
