A truck driver was arrested after running his rig into a guardrail along I-64 in Clark County.
Police say truck driver Bryan Scott Miller, 37, of Elizabethtown, took out about 50 yards of guardrail along the interstate, blowing out several tires on the rig and causing a diesel fuel leak. Police say the tanker was hauling hot asphalt. There was initially some concern that it might leak, but the tank was not compromised.
They located the tractor-trailer at the Shell station on Van Meter Road by following the trail of debris. The rig was leaking fuel in the gas station parking lot.
Police say they found pills and marijuana in the tractor-trailer.
Police arrested Miller and charged him with DUI (drug), drug possession and leaving the scene of an accident. The Clark County Detention Center website also lists an assault charge. What led to that, remains unclear. State Police say Miller was also wanted for other warrants.
