A woman and a two-year old child were involved in a single vehicle crash this morning on Wingfield Church Road that sent the woman to the hospital.
Emergency personnel responded to the 7600 block of Wingfield Church Road (KY HWY 1749) this morning around 7am where the call first came in as trapped driver.
According to KY State Police, Kristen Cowles, (23) of Bowling Green was headed north on 1749 when she saw a truck and trailer attempting to pull onto the highway as she topped a hill in a 2000 Honda. Police said she thought the truck was going to pull into her path and as a reaction, slammed on the brakes, skidded out of control, and crashed into a tree.
Rescuers were able to free Ms. Cowles from the car and she was transported to the Medical Center in Bowling Green via Edmonson EMS for non-life threatening injuries. Police said the two-year old was properly restrained in a child safety seat and was uninjured. Cowles was reportedly wearing her seatbelt.
Also responding to the scene were the Wingfield and Brownsville Fire Departments and the JAWS of Life.
