A Rocky Hill man was taken to the hospital after a collision with a tree on Rocky Hill Road earlier today, according to the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office.
Officials said Windford Dawson, Jr., (47) was headed west on KY HWY 259 (Rocky Hill Road) when his Pontiac Solstice slid off the left hand side of the road and struck a tree on the passenger's side. One emergency worker on scene said the driver was extricated from the vehicle by Edmonson County JAWS.
Heavy rains fell all day on Sunday and the wet road was likely a factor in the crash, according to officials.
Dawson was transported to the Medical Center for unknown injuries by Edmonson EMS, according to the Sheriff's Office.
Also responding were the Rocky Hill and Brownsville Fire Departments.
