Emergency personnel were dispatched to the intersection of HWY 101 and 743 around 7:45am this morning to a report of a two-vehicle collision.
According to the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office, Courtney Kemble, (30), of Brownsville was turning left onto HWY 101 from HWY 743 when her Chrysler minivan partially entered the path of John Bratcher, (80), who was driving a white Lexus SUV headed south on 101.
Kemble's van was struck in the rear driver's side by Bratcher's Lexus and both vehicles came to rest in opposite emergency lanes, according to the Sheriff.
The Sheriff said that neither Kemble nor her two-year old daughter were injured in the collision as Kemble was wearing a seat belt and the child was properly restrained in a child safety seat.
Bratcher, who was also wearing a seat belt, was not injured. Multiple airbags were deployed in his vehicle. Sheriff Shane Doyle said given the situation and impact, he was amazed that none of the occupants in the vehicles were injured.
"Thank God no one was injured," said Sheriff Doyle. "That's one of our busiest intersections during the school rush, and it's a miracle no other vehicles were involved and no one was hurt. This is a great example of how important seat belts and child safety seats can be. We'd like to encourage everyone to take your time when school traffic is heavy and please watch closely."
Traffic was backed up for about a half hour in both directions while the scene was being cleared.
Responding at the scene were the Chalybeate and Brownsville Fire Departments, Edmonson County EMS, Sheriff Shane Doyle, and Edmonson County Emergency Management.

Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
Last week, President Donald Trump signed into law Congressman Brett Guthrie’s (KY-02) Building Our Largest Dementia (BOLD) Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act (H.R. 4256/S. 2076) into law.
“Alzheimer’s disease is devastating on multiple levels: For the person who suffers with it, and for the families and friends who must help their loved ones fight this terrible disease,” said Guthrie. “As the number of Americans with Alzheimer’s – currently over 5 million people – is expected to rise, we need more information about what causes it and how to help treat it. I was proud to introduce the BOLD Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act to address this need. I want to thank the many advocates in Kentucky and the around the country who are fighting Alzheimer’s every day, my fellow members of Congress and the Senate for supporting this bill, and President Trump for signing the BOLD Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act into law. I look forward to seeing this bill implemented, and I will continue to support Alzheimer’s research in Congress.”
The BOLD Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act will create a public health infrastructure to support prevention, treatment, and care for patients with Alzheimer’s and related neurological diseases. Guthrie introduced the bipartisan House bill with Rep. Paul Tonko (NY-20), and the Senate companion was introduced by Senators Susan Collins (R-ME), Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), and Tim Kaine (D-VA). Following its passage in the House and Senate late last year, President Trump signed the BOLD Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act into law last week.
Specifically, the BOLD Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act will:
Build an Alzheimer’s and related dementias network by establishing Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias Public Health Centers of Excellence and awarding cooperative agreements to public health departments, which will help the Centers and state, local and tribal public health departments develop and carry out Alzheimer’s interventions. This crucial support will help the Centers and public health departments across the country strengthen their efforts aimed at increasing early detection and diagnosis, reducing risk, and preventing unnecessary hospitalizations of people living with Alzheimer's and related dementias.
Require robust data analysis and reporting through Cooperative Agreements with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) that will ensure data on Alzheimer’s, cognitive decline, caregiving, and health disparities are analyzed and disseminated to the public in a timely manner.
Dept. of Public Health Urges Vaccination and Hand Washing For Kentuckians
Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
The Department for Public Health (DPH), within the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS), now reports “widespread” flu activity in Kentucky for the first time this flu season. Widespread is the highest level of flu activity, which indicates increased flu cases or flu outbreaks in at least half of the Commonwealth’s regions.
“We strongly encourage anyone who hasn’t received a flu vaccine, particularly children six months and older and those people at high risk for complications related to the flu, to get a flu shot,” said Jeff Howard, M.D., commissioner of DPH. “Also remember to cover your cough and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth because germs are spread this way. Be sure to frequently wash your hands with soap and water and stay home if you are sick with flu-like illness.”
DPH reports weekly influenza activity to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The weekly report is located online at https://healthalerts.ky.gov/Pages/FluActivity.aspx and is updated each Friday by noon. Kentucky currently is reporting 1,457 laboratory-confirmed cases of flu. The report consists of laboratory-confirmed cases of influenza that are defined by molecular virus testing and positive virus culture test results. Rapid positive influenza tests are not included in this report, but are used as an indicator of flu-like illness circulating across the state.
The number of flu cases to date this season (1,457) is comparable to the number of cases at the same time last season (1,411). One of the hardest hit areas currently is Louisville Metro, which has confirmed more than 550 cases recently. Overall, approximately 882 cases have been confirmed in Louisville Metro this flu season, which is up from just 179 cases confirmed at the same time in the previous flu season.
Four adult deaths and one pediatric death have now been linked to the flu in Kentucky this flu season. At this time in the last flu season Kentucky had twelve flu-related deaths, all adults. During the entire flu season there were 333 flu-related deaths in Kentucky last year, five of which were pediatric.
The CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends flu vaccine for all individuals six months of age and older. People who are strongly encouraged to receive the flu vaccine because they may be at higher risk for complications or negative consequences include:
During the 2016-17 and 2017-18 influenza seasons, ACIP recommended that Flu Mist not be used because of concerns about low effectiveness against influenza A (H1N1). However, ACIP recommends that FluMist once again be an option for vaccination during the 2018-2019 influenza season for persons for whom it is age-appropriate and who have no medical contraindications. The change in recommendation is a result of the influenza A (H1N1) strain being changed in the current FluMist formulation.
Due to the timing of the decision by the ACIP regarding use of FluMist, the Kentucky Vaccines for Children Program (VFC) will not be offering FluMist for VFC or KCHIP patients during the 2018-2019 influenza season. However, some private providers will offer FluMist this season for their patients.
The flu vaccine is especially important in light of the severe season experienced last year across the U.S. The CDC reports that more than 900,000 flu-related hospitalizations occurred and more than 80,000 people died as a result of flu. Of the pediatric flu deaths reported in last year’s season, more than one-third of these occurred among healthy children between the ages of 6 months and 4 years.
It is especially important for pregnant women to be vaccinated before or during pregnancy. Antibodies cross the placenta and provide immunity to infants up to 6 months of age, when the infant is eligible to receive their dose of flu vaccine.
DPH relies on sites such as doctors’ offices, hospitals and health departments to help track the level of influenza activity in the state and to identify which strains of the flu are circulating in Kentucky. These voluntary sites collect data and report influenza-like illness (ILI) cases according to age groups each week. This sampling represents only a small percentage of influenza cases for the state, but contributes to the ongoing assessment of flu activity in the Commonwealth and helps determine the weekly level of flu activity.
Infection with the flu virus can cause fever, headache, cough, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing and body aches. Flu can be very contagious. For more information on influenza or the availability of flu vaccine, Kentuckians should contact their primary care medical provider or local health department.
Influenza information is also available online at https://www.cdc.gov/flu/index.htm.
