No injuries were reported Thursday after a truck carrying large bales of hay overturned in the city limits of Princeton.

The accident occurred near the Athens Crossroads. The truck was pulling its trailer on Route 20 when the driver noticed the trailer was getting close to the ditch, Officer J.L. Faris of the Princeton Police Department said.

Faris said the trailer actually entered the ditch, and its fifth wheel got stuck in the ditch, causing the vehicle to turn over. No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

“As far as we know no one was injured, and this was the only vehicle involved,” Faris said.
