Emergency personnel responded to a two vehicle crash this afternoon around 4pm on the north side of the Brownsville Bridge near Mis Amigos Mexican Grill.
Police said a white 2005 Kia Spectra driven by Anthony Adams, (80) of Segal, was apparently traveling south in the northbound lane when he met a 2014 Kia, driven by Monte Prewitt, (63) of Brownsville, who was headed north. Police reported that Prewitt tried to avoid Adams, but was hit in a side-swipe crash.
Monte and a passenger, Tina Prewitt, (49) were transported to the hospital via Edmonson EMS for non-life threatening injuries. Adams refused medical treatment on scene. Police reported that the cause of the accident was either "inattention or lack of vehicle control."
Police also said that after investigating, a passenger in the Prewitt vehicle, Joseph T. Basham, (25) who has resided in Edmonson County for the last four months, was found to have outstanding warrants from Jefferson County.
Basham's warrants were for promoting contraband, two separate parole violations, a possession charge, and a previous traffic violation. He was taken into custody without incident and lodged in the Hart County Jail.
Traffic was backed up on the Brownsville bridge all the way into town as well as back to the Water Department building headed north. Both vehicles were towed.
Responding to the scene were Brownsville Police, Kentucky State Police, Brownsville Fire Dept, Edmonson EMS, and District 2 Constable.
