Traffic was slowed and detoured for about a half hour today as a result of a collision that involved four different vehicles on KY HWY 259 N.
Just before noon on Thursday, December 10, 2020, emergency personnel responded to the report of a two vehicle crash in front of Midway Church on 259N. According to the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office, Sandra Russell, (75) of Bee Spring was headed south on Lindseyville Loop in a 2014 Toyota Corolla when she entered into the pathway of Joshua Simpkins, (31) of Bowling Green, who was headed south on HWY 259 in a 2003 Jeep Liberty SUV.
Deputies said the two vehicles collided and Russell's vehicle left the roadway and came to rest in the ditch. As traffic was stopped at the accident scene, Lula McGrew, (83), of Bee Spring, who was driving a 2001 Buick LeSabre, collided with Charlie Lindsey, (78) of Bee Spring, who was stopped in traffic in a 1994 GMC pickup. Minor damage was reported in McGrew's and Lindsey's vehicles, along with no injuries. Mrs. Russell was transported to the Medical Center for unknown injuries, according to the Sheriff's Office.
In addition to the Sheriff's Office, responding to the scene were the Kyrock and Brownsville Fire Departments, Edmonson EMS, Edmonson County JAWS, and Edmonson County Emergency Management.
