A wet road was listed as a key factor in an accident on Brownsville Road last night around 11:30pm that resulted in a vehicle crashing through a home.
Officials said Justice Drees, (17) of Brownsville, lost control of a 1987 Jeep Comanche pickup rounding a curve. The Edmonson County Sheriff's Office said the vehicle spun around, left the roadway, traveled through the front yard and eventually crashed through the wall and into the living room of Bobby Kerr's house.
Mr. Kerr said he was away visiting a family member in Louisville at the time of the accident. He also said he normally would have been home and probably in the living room. "Nobody was hurt so it could've been a lot worse," he said.
Officials said that Ms. Drees was wearing her seat belt at the time of the accident and was not harmed in any way, not even a scratch.
Warren Rural Electric was also dispatched to the scene to cut power to the home as a precaution until a qualified electrician could make sure the home was safe for power.
Also responding was the Chalybeate Fire Department.
