HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT) – A large piece of industrial equipment has slid into the Ohio River on the Henderson Riverfront.

The Henderson Road Department was trying to remove some silt in preparation for a riverboat to arrive, but their usual vehicle they use for silt removal was unavailable. Because of that, the Henderson Road Department needed to use a different vehicle for this job.

There are special tires on their usual vehicle, but these special tires were not on this backup vehicle they were using. Due to the lack of these tires, the backup vehicle slid into the river.

The Henderson Fire Department was there to help retrieve the vehicle. The vehicle has since been salvaged from the river.
