LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (AP) - People living along a rural Anderson County road that has been the setting for dozens of accidents in recent years are taking legal action to try to force the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet to limit the number of commercial trucks traveling on it.

WKYT-TV (https://bit.ly/1T4ymdn) reports that a lawsuit filed Monday by two property owners says there have been 88 crashes along a 3-mile stretch of Kentucky Route 151 since 2012, many of them involving tractor-trailers.

The two men say they represent a group of more than 150 people who have signed a petition asking the state to limit the number of commercial tractor-trailers allowed on the road.

Kentucky, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, Secretary of the Cabinet Greg Thomas and the Department of Public Highways are named as defendants. The Transportation Cabinet declined to comment.
