The woman was driving south in a Chevy pickup when she crossed the center line and into the path of a northbound tractor-trailer carrying a load of Post-it Notes from the nearby 3M plant, Hampton said.
Eric Hanson, 34, of Wisconsin, was treated for minor injuries at Harrison Memorial Hospital in Cynthiana and released.
