Truck Goes Wrong Way, Gets Stuck, Closes Pike Street

A Speedway fuel truck went the wrong way on West 12th Street in Covington on Saturday afternoon and then became stuck trying to make a right turn on eastbound Pike Street.

The portion of 12th Street in question becomes one-way for a block just west of I-75.

The truck driver went the wrong way.

It is unclear why.

According to RCN photographer Brian Frey, who was on the scene, the tanker was full.

Traffic was stopped in both directions due to the driver's error.
