Deputies say slick roads were a factor when a Brownsville man lost control of his truck on KY HWY 259 (Brownsville Road) and crashed into a tree this morning.
The Sheriff's office reported that Joshua Farmer, 24, of Brownsville, was headed north on 259 in a 2002 Ford F150 when the truck slipped off the right side of the road and hit a fence post. The collision caused the truck to spin out, change directions, and crash into a tree from the side, just a few feet from the porch of a nearby home, located at 8460 Brownsville Road near Pig, KY.
Deputies said the truck would have likely ended up on the porch of the house, or worse, inside the home had it not been for the tree.
Farmer was transported to the Medical Center in Bowling Green via Edmonson EMS with possible fractures in his face, according to reports.
