Emergency responders were called out to a single-vehicle accident at 1:41pm Saturday, January 30, 2016 in the 6000 block of Wingfield Church Road (KY HWY 1749). Deputies said the driver, Marcus Flener 28, of Wingfield, apparently failed to negotiate a curve, ran off the road, and struck a tree head-on in a 2000 Ford Explorer.
Reports said that Flener was complaining of chest pains and was taken by Edmonson EMS to the Wingfield Fire Department where an Air-Evac helicopter landed and transported Flener to Nashville. The extent of his injuries and status were unknown at press time.
Deputies also said that soon after, a call came in to dispatch with reports of a bloodied man walking up Wingfield Church Road with an open gash on his head. Around 3:15pm, an unknown female called from a residence requesting medical attention for her boyfriend, Dallas Renfro, 27, also of Wingfield, who claimed he was a passenger in Flener's vehicle.
Renfro was then transported to the Medical Center via Edmonson EMS. Also responding to the scene was the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office and the Edmonson County Rescue Squad.
