Emergency officials think a medical emergency may be the reason for a fatal coal truck accident late Thursday morning on Ky. 92E near Mossy Gap.
Whitley County Coroner Andy Croley pronounced James Gambrel, 59, of Woolum, dead at the scene about noon.
Croley said that Gambrel was driving an 18-wheel Peterbilt semi, which was loaded with coal, east on Ky. 92 near the 21-mile marker when the wreck happened.
“It appears that he possibly had a medical emergency and left the roadway,” Croley said.
