Emergency workers responded to a two vehicle crash on Thursday near the intersection of KY HWY 3611 and 101 around 10:30am, just south of the Chalybeate Food Mart.
According to the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office, Frank Richmond, Sr., (66) of Smiths Grove and Max Holloway, (21) of Sweeden, were both headed south on KY HWY 101.
Officials said Richmond, who was driving a 2012 Ford Focus, pulled off the roadway into the emergency lane. Reports said that Richmond apparently failed to see Holloway, who was trailing in a 2005 Ford F150. Officials said that Richmond attempted to make a u-turn and pulled from the emergency lane into the path of Holloway, who was still headed south. Both vehicles collided and left the roadway.
Richmond was trapped inside the vehicle and portions of the car had to be cut away via Edmonson County JAWS.
Richmond was transported to the Medical Center by Edmonson EMS for a leg injury, according to witnesses on scene. Holloway was reported to have minor scrapes and refused medical treatment on scene.
It was reported that both drivers were wearing seat belts during the crash and airbags were deployed in both vehicles.
Also responding to the scene was the Brownsville Fire Department and District 2 Constable.
