On Wednesday, April 29th, a vehicle driven by Shelly Jackson, 24, of Mammoth Cave, struck a utility pole, severely damaging the car and sending Jackson to Twin Lakes for medical evaluation.
According to Sheriff Shane Doyle, evidence on scene indicated that she had drifted over the center line while heading west on KY HWY 728 near Chestnut St. and then over-corrected, sending the 2002 Pontiac Sunfire she was driving into a skid. Her car then went across the right shoulder of the roadway, stopping when she struck a security light pole, as well as a utility pole. The impact broke the utility pole nearly in two. Jackson, complaining of neck and chest pain, was treated and released.
Jackson was transported by Edmonson EMS. The sheriff's office was assisted on-scene by the Lincoln and Kyrock Fire Departments.
