Complex Injury Car Crash In Nelson County
A serious car wreck in Nelsonville drew first responders from two counties to the scene of a two-vehicle collision.
The wreck happened near the intersection of the Bluegrass Parkway and Nelsonville Road, right around a sharp curve in the road. The vehicle owner from Campbellsville, told investigators that she allowed her friend to drive her Chevrolet Impala; and that the Impala’s tires were bald and she had earlier hydroplaned over a wet spot on the road. As the Impala rounded the curve, it slid over some liquid on the road’s surface, which police believe may have been fuel or oil. The Impala driver lost control and smashed into the passenger side door of a Honda Accord that was traveling in the opposite direction. Two people were transported to nearby hospitals with serious car wreck injuries.
