According to a Kentucky State Police report, Jordan Ellison, 25, of Dundas, Ill., was operating a white International truck headed north on Kentucky 1069 when he observed a vehicle traveling south.

The report said the vehicle came to rest facing west blocking both lanes of Kentucky 1069. Ellison and his passenger, Lance Hurd, 37, Flora, Ill., were not injured. The vehicle was transporting equipment used by the oil industry. It contained a small amount of radioactive material, however, the material was not a threat.
