MARION, Ky. (AP) — A rock slide in western Kentucky has been drawing visitors to the scene where the boulder rolled down a hill.

Crittenden County Judge-Executive Perry Newcom told WPSD-TV in Paducah (http://bit.ly/19QaeZR ) that he fears a large price tag for moving the giant rock. Newcom applied for emergency road aid from the state. He said even though it's a county road, approval of the aid would allow the state to pay for 80 percent of the project.

Newcom says cleanup could begin soon, but could a few months until the road is back to normal after the slide last week.

In the meantime, people such as 13-year-old Sawyer Towery flock to the rock to see it in person. Towery climbed to the top of the boulder to look around on his visit.
