A Brownsville man was sent to the hospital after a single vehicle accident Sunday morning on Oak Hill Road in the Mohawk area.
Emergency personnel were called out to the scene this morning around 10am, where they found a 2006 Chevrolet Colorado which had crashed through a fence belonging to Paquin Farms. Police said the driver, Christopher Bullock, 21 of Brownsville told them he looked away for a moment and went off the left side of the road. Police also said he over corrected, which caused the truck to exit the right side of the roadway where it overturned, crashed through the fence, landed upright, and then rolled another 200 feet where it finally came to rest.
Emergency workers said Bullock was complaining of back pain and was transported to the hospital for possible injuries. "Fortunately, Mr. Bullock was wearing his seatbelt," said Deputy Wally Ritter. "It probably kept him from being thrown out of the vehicle and suffering injuries that would have likely been much more severe."
Responding to the accident was the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office, Edmonson EMS, and the Chalybeate Fire Department.
