SALTILLO – Traffic on Highway 45 North was slowed this morning by a wreck involving two large trucks.

The accident occurred near the Natchez Trace overpass when a log truck rear-ended an 18-wheeler in the northbound lanes. The log truck did not spill any of its load.

The Saltillo Police Department worked the scene and reported only minor injuries. The road was cleared by 12:30 p.m.

    One semi rear-ended another? Had it been a car the idiot probably would have just run over it. This is just an example of the antics those log-trucks display each and every day as they speed up & down Highway 45. Anyone using 45 with any regularity has experience with those log trucks & know full well to steer clear.
