Emergency personnel were called to a two-vehicle accident yesterday afternoon around 3pm at the intersection of KY HWY 422 and 31W.
According to reports, Katelyn Miller, 20, of Brownsville, was headed south on 31W when she was hit by a Chevy pickup driven by Damon Heltsley, 41, who was driving north, also of Brownsville as he turned in front of her.
The Sheriff's Office reported that Miller, who was also 15 weeks pregnant, according to her father, was transported by Edmonson County EMS to the Medical Center at Bowling Green. Heltsley reportedly refused transport to any medical facility.
According to Sheriff Shane Doyle, Heltsley smelled of alcohol and showed signs of impairment. Doyle also reported that after attempting to talk to him about how much he'd had to drink, Heltsley was arrested and charged with DUI.
"We'd also like to extended our gratitude to Rocky Hill fire department for handling all traffic control during the busy afternoon rush," Doyle said.
