Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A semi carrying scrap metal overturned while pulling out of ISA Scrap Metal on Grade Lane.

According to an ISA employee, the driver cut the turn too tight resulting in the overturn. The trailer caught power lines which resulted in a snapped pole and downed wires almost to the street level.

The driver had minor injuries and has already been released from the hospital.

LG&E is working on the downed lines and the semi has been cleared, but the road remains closed.
