For the third time in 24 hours, emergency personnel were called out to another accident in Edmonson County this morning, a two car collision around 7:30am at the intersection of Denham Road and KY HWY 743, near Chalybeate Church.
Authorities reported that Gualdaldo Amilcar, (37) Bowling Green, was driving a 2008 Ford F150 owned by Adam Cassady of Chalybeate. According to official reports, Amilcar was driving south on 743 and attempted to turn left on Denham Road. He apparently turned into the path of an oncoming Nissan Altima, driven by Amanda Sowders (36) of Brownsville, who was headed north on 743 after making a drop off at school.
Officials said that Sowders tried to avoid the truck by veering right, but was unable to get out of the way and was hit. Her car traveled several feet off the road up an embankment.
Mrs. Sowders was transported to the Medical Center in Bowling Green by Edmonson EMS for non-life threatening injuries.
Amilcar was not injured. He was cited for driving without an operator's license.
Also responding to the accident were the Chalybeate and Kyrock Fire Departments and the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office.
