Straight line winds from Monday’s severe weather toppled a livestock truck in Guthrie County.

Authorities say it happened west of Jamaica on Highway 141 around 11:30 a.m. when winds in excess of 70 miles per hour pushed the truck off the road and into a ditch. The Guthrie County Sheriff’s Office say the trailer was empty.

The driver of the truck, Ross Marks of Kentucky, wasn’t hurt in the incident.

It took crews more than two hours to get the scene cleaned-up.
