An Edmonton man was arrested Monday evening for alcohol intoxication in a public place, first and second offenses, after police responded to a call of an out-of-control person at T.J. Samson Community Hospital, according to a Glasgow Police Department report.
Police officers learned that Jordan P. Buys, 21, had been in a collision in Metcalfe County, and Buys told them he was driving and had too much alcohol to be driving, according to the GPD report.
No one was available at the time to pick up the subject at the hospital, so Officer Brandon Fletcher placed him into custody to avoid his being a risk to himself or others, according to the report.
He was released Tuesday from the Barren County Detention Center on a Section A bond, meaning he was signed out into someone else's recognizance within eight hours.
GPD and BCSO investigate wrecks
Aaron Jameson, 19, of Glasgow stated that he was traveling south on North Race Street on Sunday evening and was attempting to turn left onto West Cherry Street when the 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier he was driving was struck in the front passenger side by an oncoming car, according to a GPD report.
Jacqueline Garner, 50, of Glasgow, told police she was traveling north on Race “when all of a sudden a vehicle turned right in front of her 1997 Geo Prism, according to the report.
Besides Jameson, three other people were in the Cavalier; Garner had no passengers. All occupants of all vehicles were wearing their seat belts, according to the report.
Both vehicles were towed from the scene.
Officer Tommy Corbin investigated. Garner and one of his passengers – a 2-year-old female – were listed as only having possible injuries, but both were transported to T.J. Samson Community Hospital.
A Beaumont man was injured in a two-vehicle wreck Saturday on Ky. 90 about eight miles east of Glasgow, according to a Barren County Sheriff's Office report.
Jeffrey Shaw, 23, could not provide details of what happened to Deputy Dean Crumbaugh, who investigated the collision, but the driver of the other vehicle – Brandon R. Moore, 29, of Burkesville – and witnesses in other vehicles said Shaw was driving his 1994 Ford Ranger east when the back end of his vehicle began to fishtail on the wet roadway, causing him to lose control of the truck, according to BCSO report.
The Ranger turned completely sideways in the roadway and then entered the lane in which Moore was driving and the front of Moore's vehicle – a 1988 Chevrolet pickup – hit the side of the Ranger, at which point the Ranger began to spin clockwise and Shaw was ejected from the vehicle through the windshield, according to the report.
He continued down an embankment and came to rest in a creek bed on the south side shoulder of the road, according to the report.
The impact of the collision caused the rear axle and drive shaft of the Ranger to be knocked from the vehicle and they went through a brick wall serving as an entranceway to a home in the 8000 block, landing about 100 feet from the Ranger, according to the report.
The Chevy truck continued forward and then came to rest on the right shoulder of the roadway.
Shaw suffered severe facial cuts and suspected broken ribs, but was conscious when the deputy arrived, according the report.
He was treated at the scene and then transported to T.J. Samson Community Hospital by Barren-Metcalfe EMS, the report stated.
Neither Moore nor his two passengers suffered superficial injuries, but declined transportation for treatment, according to the report.
