Around noon, Wednesday, December 7th, a transfer truck from Grenada, Mississippi, left the road, heading east into Scotts Hill.  Once into the soft culvert area, the rest of the truck was pulled in, climbing the bank, and the entire rig came to rest on the drivers side.  Two wreckers were dispatched to clear the vehicle.  An officer from the Scotts Hill Police Department said that  the driver was uninjured but shaken up.  The incident is believed to have been a distracted driving incident.
