UPDATED

There’s been another “unplanned stop” at the foot of the mountain in DeKalb County, at what’s known far and wide as “Joe’s Truck Stop” – which, in reality, is simply a wall constructed of cement and stone.

According to early reports – a truck hauling lumber crashed around 2:00am Tuesday at the corner of Highway 35 and 5th Avenue.  Fortunately, the driver was unhurt and no other vehicles were involved.  The truck was owned by M & A Hill Trucking, out of North Carolina.

“Joe’s Truck Stop” was constructed way back in 1959 by Mr. Joe Faulkner, in an effort to protect his home at the bottom of the hill where the road turns to go into Ft Payne, from big rigs that often “lost their brakes” coming down the steep grade.
