Three teens walked away from an incredible collision today with only minor injuries after a rollover accident on Oak Hill Road.
According to the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office, Adryan Forbes, (19) of Bowling Green was headed south on Oak Hill Road in a 2016 Ford Focus. Mr. Forbes told the Edmonson Voice that he lost control of the vehicle and it exited the left side of the roadway.
The Edmonson County Sheriff's Office said that according to evidence at the scene, it appeared that after the vehicle left the roadway, it struck a number of trees that caused the vehicle not only to rotate 180 degrees, but also overturn and land on its top. Somewhere in the crash the vehicle's engine was knocked completely out and landed about 50 feet south of the crash.
Emergency personnel also gathered other major parts along the roadway including an axle with a wheel still attached and the vehicle's radiator.
The Sheriff's Office said there were also two passengers in the vehicle, both 18 years of age. All three teens were walking around and discussing the accident. All were wearing their seat belts during the crash and they were all able to exit the vehicle without assistance. They chose not to be transported to the hospital and had only minor cuts and bruises.
Also responding to the scene was the Chalybeate Fire Department and Edmonson EMS.
