A Lawrenceburg woman was critically injured in a collision with a log truck that closed a highway in Anderson County for hours.

Sate police said 57-year-old Phyllis Oates pulled into the path of a tractor trailer as she made a u-turn from Long Road onto Highway 555.

Investigators said the collision caused the semi to overturn and spill its load of logs onto the road.

State police said Oates was flown to U.K. Hospital where she was listed in critical condition Wednesday evening.

The truck driver, 69-year-old Rodney Peace of Magnolia was taken to a hospital in Frankfort where he was treated and released.
