Semi spills liquid nitrogen in wreck

A semi lost control on a curve north of Marysville on Highway 77 and ended up on it’s side Monday afternoon, spilling liquid nitrogen and causing the highway to be shut down for part of the night.  Randy Keith of Kentucky was the driver and he was taken by ambulance to Community Memorial Healthcare.  According to the report, the semi was southbound when the driver lost control of the truck on a curve and overcorrected when going off the shoulder.  The highway was closed to one way traffic for much of the night and was closed completely for about 90 minutes while a wrecker removed the truck.  Officials were on the scene until about 3:30 a.m. Tuesday morning.
