A Bee Spring man is in critical but stable condition after a single vehicle rollover crash yesterday on Nolin Dam Road.
According to the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office, Mitch Saltsman (39) of Bee Spring was headed east on KY HWY 728 in a Ford Ranger pickup when he lost control of the vehicle, which left the roadway. According to official reports, the truck overturned and Saltsman was ejected from the vehicle.
Saltsman was air lifted to University of Louisville Hospital via Air Methods where he remains in critical condition with a serious head injury and several major broken bones.
Also responding at the scene were the Kyrock and Brownsville Fire Departments, Edmonson EMS, and the District 2 Constable.
Officials said this is the fourth accident on Highway 728 during the 2016 Holiday season and the sixth accident in Edmonson County in four days.
The sheriff's office also stated that they have asked the state highway department to research any possiblities of making the roadway safer in the area of the accident, located west of Nolin Dam which is a combination of S-curves and a steep incline leading down to an area of bottoms.
