The Kentucky State Police Post 3 Bowling Green responded to a two vehicle injury collision today at approx. 3:58 pm on Oak Hill Road in Edmonson County.
Officials said that Margarett Oller (17) of Brownsville, a senior at Edmonson County High School, was operating a 2006 Saturn Ion and was traveling southbound on Oak Hill Road when she dropped off the right shoulder of the roadway and over-corrected.
KSP reported that the vehicle then went into the opposing lane and struck a northbound 2011 Nissan Juke that was being operated by Courtney Johnson (26) of Brownsville.
Ms. Oller was reportedly not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision and was ejected from the vehicle. She was flown to TriStar Skyline Medical Center for treatment of her injuries.
A six year old female passenger in Ms. Johnson's vehicle was flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment of her injuries.
The investigation is still ongoing and being led by Trooper Chris Newkirk. He was assisted on the scene by Edmonson County Sheriff's Department, Brownsville Police Department, Edmonson County EMS, Brownsville and Chalybeate Fire Department, and the Edmonson County Jaws of Life Personnel.
A landing zone for two helicopters was set up at the Edmonson County Public Library. Edmonson EMS, the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office, Brownsville and Chalybeate Firefighters, and the District 2 Constable responded to that scene as well.
