Edmonson Voice Staff Report
Authorities say that heavy rainfall and slippery roads were the contributing factors in a single vehicle rollover crash that occurred Friday, December 23, 2016.
Emergency personnel responded to KY HWY 259 N just south of Midway Baptist Church in Lindseyville last night around 10:30pm. Officials said that Dustin Hunt, (24) of Bee Spring, was north bound in a 1989 GMC Sierra when he lost control of the vehicle.
According to official reports, the truck crossed the center line of the road and struck the guardrail which allowed the truck to travel on top of the rail for a short distance. Authorities said the vehicle continued in this manner until it struck a guardrail post and flipped end-over-end, coming to a final rest on its top facing south.
Officials also reported that Mr. Hunt was wearing his seat belt, which they say greatly lowered his risk of injury.
The Sheriff's Office said that considering the severity of the collision, Hunt suffered only minor injuries and was transported for medical treatment in a personal vehicle.
Responding to scene was Edmonson Co. Sheriff's Office, Edmonson EMS, and Kyrock Fire Department.
