The Clarksville Police Department is currently working a crash involving a Tractor Trailer Diesel Truck that has overturned on Whitfield Road near Blakemore Dr.. We are asking vehicles to find an alternate route until the Truck can be turned back over and towed away safely. They are also trying to determine if any Diesel Fuel has leaked. Officers on the scene have set-up detours, but if you can avoid the area it would assist CPD and avoid further traffic congestion.
The Clarksville Police Department is no longer looking for Ray Farmer. Mr. Farmer was taken into custody last night in Lawrence County, Kentucky. I have no detail on the arrest. Only wanted to make public aware, because we have been receiving tips and they are no longer needed.
