Traffic was backed up in both directions today in the 3000 block of KY HWY 259 N, just south of B. Douglas road after a single vehicle accident sent two to the hospital.
Officials said Michael Fields of Glasgow, the driver of a Mitsubishi Montero, said he lost control of the vehicle as he was traveling north. The SUV left the roadway and slammed into a road tile. Officials said he complained with chest pain while his passenger, Tori Vincent, also of Glasgow, suffered head injuries. The air bag did not deploy and it was unclear if either was wearing a seat belt.
Both were transported to Twin Lakes Regional Hospital in Leitchfield via Edmonson EMS.
The accident is still under investigation by the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office. A deputy on scene said possible criminal charges are pending.
Also responding to the scene was the Kyrock Fire Department.
