All parties escaped injury this morning in a two-vehicle crash in front of South Edmonson Elementary today during school traffic time, according to the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office.
Emergency workers responded to the scene around 7:30am today where according to the Sheriff's Office, a 2016 Ford Fusion, driven by Christopher Frogge (31) of Brownsville, attempted to pull out of South Edmonson's parking lot.
The Sheriff's Office said that Frogge told officials he didn't see the oncoming car, which was a 2010 Ford Fusion driven by Vernon Johnson (67) also of Brownsville, who was headed south on HWY 743.
The vehicles then collided in the roadway causing a partial shutdown of the road for about a half hour. Both drivers were wearing seat belts and air bags deployed in both vehicles. No injuries were reported for those involved, which also included a 6 year-old passenger in Johnson's vehicle.
"All parties involved are very fortunate to not have injuries," said Sheriff Shane Doyle. "This is an extremely busy roadway during this time of the day. This situation could've been much worse but thankfully, everyone was able to walk away safely."
Also responding was the Chalybeate Fire Department and the KY HWY Department.
