Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
The Edmonson Voice has learned that yesterday's victims from the overturned truck at the intersection of HWY 70 and 259 are recovering.
Mr. James Allman is still suffering from severe burns and is currently in the burn unit at Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville, TN. Local officials reported yesterday that he was from Indiana, according to some identification, but some close to Mr. Allman reported he currently lives in the Glasgow area.
We heard from his 17 year-old passenger, named Alyssa (no last name was given), who said in a message, "I'm okay now. I have little burns, and they're not as bad as they thought. One on my foot is really severe."
She also wanted to thank the officer who pulled her and Mr. Allman from the burning vehicle, Josh Watt.
"If it wasn't for Josh I wouldn't be here right now."
Other family members sent messages to the Edmonson Voice throughout the night, also thanking Josh and local emergency workers for their heroic actions. Many of the community left encouraging messages of hope and prayer to the victims.
