Woman dies in 68/80 crash

5 juveniles injured

GLASGOW — A Green County woman has died following a two-vehicle collision Thursday afternoon at the intersection of U.S. 68/Ky. 80 and Industrial Drive.

Barren County Coroner Mike Swift said Jennifer Carter, 36, died as a result of her injuries after being flown from the scene by Air Evac to Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville.

Carter was driving a 2002 Chrysler Town & Country that collided with a Townsend Tree Service truck at approximately 2:40 p.m. Thursday. Carter’s five children, who were passengers in the van, were also injured, according to Glasgow Police Department public information officer Capt. Kent Keen.

Danielle Carter, 15, was also flown from the scene by Air Methods of Kentucky to Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville, according to Swift. She is listed in guarded condition.

The other four children, Natalie Carter, 2, Corey Carter, 7, Krystal Carter, 12, and Jessica Carter, 17, were transported by Barren-Metcalfe Emergency Medical Service to T.J. Samson Community Hospital for treatment.

The 7-year-old boy was later flown to Kosair for additional treatment, according to Swift. He is listed in serious but stable condition. The other three children were treated and released.

The truck appeared to have struck the mini-van in the driver’s side door. Glasgow Fire Department personnel worked to extract the driver of the van, while Barren-Metcalfe EMS personnel and GPD officers assisted.

There has been no official cause of the accident released at press time.

The driver of the truck was apparently not injured in the collision and was not transported by ambulance.

He remains unidentified at press time.
