Emergency personnel responded to a two-vehicle accident today on Mohawk Road that sent three people to the hospital, including a seven year-old.
Officials said that Samantha McCoy, (20) of Brownsville was headed south in a Honda Civic on Mohawk Road around noon when she saw an approaching Scion TC, driven by Diana Bond (54) of Bowling Green. Authorities said that as McCoy attempted to slow down to better accommodate the oncoming car, the brakes locked on the steep downhill slope and she skidded into the oncoming lane, striking the Scion.
Ms. Bond and her seven year-old passenger were transported to the Medical Center via Edmonson EMS for non-life threatening injuries. Miss McCoy was taken to Greenview Hospital by her family, also for non-life threatening injuries.
It was reported that all parties were wearing their seat belts and airbags were deployed in both vehicles.
Police said that according to evidence at the scene, both cars were driving according to the speed limit but that wet road conditions and the winding slope were factors in the accident.
Responding to the scene was the Brownsville Police Department, the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office, and both the Brownsville and Chalybeate Fire Departments.
