Briefs: Two injured in Bon Ayr collision

GLASGOW — A crash on Park City-Bon Ayr Road injured two people, including one that was flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center on Sunday afternoon.

John Nunn, 30, of Park City, was traveling north on Ky. 255 when his 2004 Ford pickup dropped off the right shoulder of the roadway. Nunn overcorrected and struck the 1969 Chevy El Camino driven by Owsley Costlow, 16, of Glasgow, who was going south, according to a release by the Kentucky State Police.

Both vehicles went over an embankment and came to rest in a field.

Nunn was transported by Barren-Metcalfe Emergency Medical Services to T.J. Samson Community Hospital where he was treated and released.

Costlow was transported by helicopter to Vanderbilt where he is in critical, but stable condition.

One injured in four-vehicle crash

A four-vehicle crash injured one Monroe County woman Sunday on Kino Road.

Kathrine Walden, 50, of Tompkinsville, was traveling eastbound on Kino Road when she lost control of her vehicle and ran off the road. Walden’s vehicle struck a mailbox before she overcorrected and ran into the front garden of 3504 Kino Road, hitting a small tree. She then hit a parked car at the residence and flipped over, landing on another car. The impact of the crash caused that car to hit another that was parked next to it, according to the Barren County Sheriff’s Office.

Walden was trapped in the car when it turned over, and the East Barren Volunteer Fire Department was called to assist.

Walden was transported to T.J. Samson  by the Barren-Metcalfe EMS, where she was treated and released for neck and back injuries.

The BCSO was on scene for about three hours.
