Two injured during Monday crash
Two people were transported to the hospital following a two-vehicle crash late Monday afternoon that resulted in their SUV flipping over on its top in a ditch.
The accident happened on Ky. 26 between Woodbine and Rockholds shortly before 5 p.m.
Pamela Carr, 45, was driving a Chevrolet Blazer and was attempting to make a left turn in order to look at a trailer for rent when the crash occurred, said Whitley County Sheriff’s Deputy Joe Prewitt.
Madonna Parsons, 44, was driving a Toyota Rav 4 that was going in the same direction as the Blazer and there was one vehicle between them.
Parsons went to pass the vehicle directly in front of her not realizing there was a vehicle in front of that attempting to turn.
When Carr attempted to make her left turn, she sideswiped the Rav 4, which ended up rolling over onto its top in a ditch, Prewitt said.
Woodbine Fire and Rescue didn’t have to use the Jaws of Life to extricate anyone out of the Rav 4, but did assist the driver and passenger in getting out of the vehicle.
Parsons complained of multiple injuries, including leg, hip and back pain. Her 15-year-old passenger complained about back pain after the crash, Prewitt said.
Whitley County EMS treated both at the scene and took them to Baptist Health Corbin.
Both the driver and the passenger in the Blazer refused treatment, Prewitt said.
No drug or alcohol involvement is suspected.
