CCSO said in a news release that deputies responded at approximately 10 a.m. Wednesday to a head-on collision on KY 121 North. The driver of a Penske box truck, Donald Wallace, 62, of Calvert City, was northbound on KY 121 North while the driver of a 2004 Toyota Camry was southbound. Wallace told deputies that the Camry came into his lane and he was unable to do anything because of the large drop-off on the right side of the roadway. After the initial collision, the truck exited the roadway to the right into a ditch.
