5:01 AFTERNOON UPDATE: More details available on Monday's Veterans loop accident

GLASGOW — Both adults transported to T.J. Samson Community Hospital on Monday after an accident that occurred on Veterans Outer Loop at Walmart were treated and released.

Information was unavailable on the condition of the two juveniles because the Glasgow Police Department does not release the names of juveniles involved in accidents, so the names are not available for requesting information from the hospital.

Andrew B. Tabor, 30, of Summer Shade was driving north on the loop in a 2008 Ford F350 pickup, which was pulling a livestock trailer, and told police the traffic light was green in his favor as he continued through the intersection on the loop at the Walmart driveway and South Beaver Trail, according to the GPD report.

Danielle Martin, 39, of Glasgow told police she was traveling south on the loop in a 2009 Dodge Journey and had a green light as she was turning left into the Walmart drive, according to the report.

The first point of impact was when the pickup and the Journey collided in the intersection, , according to the report, and that hit knocked the engine out of the Journey and into the roadway. After the initial impact, the trailer struck the front end of the third vehicle involved, a 1996 GMC Jimmy, driven by April Isaacs, 29, of Munfordville, who was waiting to turn northbound onto the loop, according to the report.

At the scene, the Journey stopped in a position at the median pointed toward the southbound lanes from which it had just come. The truck and trailer stopped in a jack-knife position just north of the intersection. The Jimmy was still at the edge of the drive.

Tabor and Martin and Martin's juvenile passengers – a male and a female – were transported to T.J. Samson hospital. Isaacs reported no injuries, according the report, which also indicates that all five people involved were wearing seat belts. The two front airbags of the Journey had deployed as well.

A witness stated to police that he had been behind the pickup truck but then as the truck was continuing through the intersection, the witness had gotten into a different lane and was turning right into the Walmart drive; the light was green at the time the two vehicles were in the intersection, the witness said.

In addition GPD and Barren-Metcalfe EMS, Glasgow Fire Department assisted at the accident site.
