MIDWAY – UPDATED: Calloway County Sheriff Sam Steger is continuing to urge all motorists to avoid U.S. 641 South in the area of the Midway community for the next several hours. 

Steger said a semi truck has crashed on the highway and will not be able to be removed until later in the day. He said the truck was carrying mining explosives. They are stable and safe, but will take several hours to unload box by box, Steger said. Power is currently out all over Hazel and most areas south of Midway, he said.

All motorists are asked to detour around the crash site by using Midway Road, Crossland Road or State Line Road.
