A two-vehicle accident involving an Edmonson County EMS Emergency Response Vehicle sent two to the hospital on Sunday morning around 9:30am near the Blue Holler Cafe on KY HWY 728.
According to Kentucky State Police, Brian Keith Sanders (50) of Mammoth Cave was operating a 2010 Ford Emergency Response Vehicle (Ford Expedition) and was traveling west on KY 728 where he was responding to an emergency call for service with the emergency equipment activated. While traveling west, he approached another westbound vehicle, a 2013 Ford Escape being operated by Danny Holland (61) of Louisville. As Sanders came upon Holland’s vehicle, which was slowing, he proceeded to go around him when Holland made a left hand turn attempting to pull into the Blue Holler Café. At this point the front of the vehicle collided with the driver’s side of Holland’s vehicle.
Mr. Holland was transported by Edmonson County EMS to the Twin Lakes Hospital for non-life threatening injuries. According to emergency personnel on scene, two people were extricated via Edmonson JAWS of Life, and the passenger of the Escape was also transported to the hospital, but no information was released on the second individual.
Also responding to the scene were the Lincoln, Kyrock, and Brownsville Fire Departments, as well as the U.S. Park Service.
The investigation is still ongoing and being led by Trooper Ashcon Karbasi.
*earlier reports said an Edmonson County ambulance was involved in the accident, however, Kentucky State Police has retracted that information to show that the vehicle was an EMS Emergency Response vehicle, not an ambulance. We have also corrected our article and we apologize for the mix up.
