Willie Lyons fumbles with a side mirror on his log truck that jackknifed at 6527 Fisher Ferry Road at about 6:20 Thursday morning. Lyons, 52, 906 Dudley Road, told Warren County Deputy Bill Messina that he swerved while heading north on Fisher Ferry Road to avoid another 18-wheeler driving south that was in his lane. Lyons ran off the road, where his empty log truck jackknifed and blocked both lanes of traffic, Messina said. No injuries were reported. Fisher Ferry traffic had to be rerouted for more than an hour.
