A two vehicle accident sent one woman and her daughter to the hospital Thursday morning on KY HWY 743, New Grove Road.
Emergency personnel responded to the junction of New Grove Road and Woosley Drive around 7:30AM where according to the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office, a blue 2015 Chrysler 200 driven by Melissa Stewart, (46) Smiths Grove, turned into the path of Rhoda Filback, (41) of Park City, who was traveling in a red 2013 Dodge Avenger on New Grove Road.
The vehicles collided, sending the Chrysler about 100 feet off the road into a field.
The Sheriff's Office said airbags were deployed in both vehicles and all involved were wearing seat belts.
Stewart and her juvenile daughter were transported to the Medical Center via Edmonson EMS for non-life threatening injuries.
The roadway was shut down for about an hour and a half as workers cleaned up the scene and removed the damaged vehicles.
The Kentucky State Highway Department also assisted on scene.
