GRAVES COUNTY, Ky -- A semi truck roll over left roughly 40,000 pounds corn on a road in Wingo, Kentucky.

According to the Graves County Sheriff's Department, Jeremy Dale Watts of Mayfield, Kentucky, was traveling north on Kentucky 339 operating a 200 Mack semi with trailer. He was going around a curve on KY 339 and North Saint Paul Street in Wingo when his load shifted causing him to overturn.

Watts was not injured in the roll over. Kentucky 339 had to be shut down and a detour was set up at Lebanon Street to get around the collision.

Officers are still investigating the incident.
