Fatal Accident Expected To Cause Delay For WCA Services

Officials with Waste Corporation of America (WCA) say a fatal wreck in Lyon County involving an employee Wednesday night is expected to cause delays in trash pick-up services Thursday and Friday.
WCA Territory Sales Representative Jeff Simms tells the News Edge that they regret to inform the community that WCA/GFL Waste suffered a terrible loss Wednesday in a vehicle accident.
Simms says waste services at the Princeton facility will be closed Thursday to mourn the loss of their team member. As a result, he adds customers may experience a delay in services potentially Thursday and Friday in Caldwell, Crittenden, Trigg, Lyon and Christian counties. He asks customers to leave the trash at the curb as WCA will provide pick up as soon as they are able.
Officials said the fatal wreck involving a WCA garbage truck and semi resulted in a fire that occurred on US 641 North about 1.5 miles north of Eddyville between U.S. 62 and KY 1943.
Spokesman Keith Todd with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet reported U.S. 641 North was closed around 6:30 Wednesday evening and remained closed for nearly seven hours while Kentucky State Police conducted a reconstruction investigation and removed the vehicles and debris from the site.
Kentucky State Police Post 1 spokesman Trooper Adam Jones tells the News Edge additional information about the fatal crash will be released Thursday afternoon.
