Truck wreck

Emergency crews and a wrecker service work Wednesday afternoon to remove a 2004 Nissan pickup truck from a fence line and ditch on Oil Well Road. Its owner, 21-year-old Jonathan Hughes, lost control of the truck when he overcorrected. He was transported by ambulance to the hospital for nonlife-threatening injuries.

A Bowling Green man was seriously injured Wednesday afternoon when the vehicle he was a passenger in overturned on Ky. 743 in Warren County, Kentucky State Police said.

Christopher Helson, 27, was flown by Air Evac to Vanderbilt Hospital in Nash-ville where he was admitted for treatment. He is listed in guarded condition, a spokes-person for the hospital said.

Police said the driver was traveling southbound on Ky. 743 when the vehicle exited the roadway and overturned just before 3:30 p.m. Helson was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident, according to police reports.

A single-vehicle accident around the same time in Barren County injured one person, officials with the Barren County Sheriff’s Department said.

Jonathan Hughes, 21, was transported by Barren-Met-calfe EMS to T.J. Samson Community Hospital for possible injuries to his neck and back. Authorities said Hughes was traveling southbound on Oil Well Road in his 2004 Nissan pickup truck when he veered to the left side of the roadway and then overcorrected. The pickup exited the right side of the road and struck a fence before coming to a rest, investigators said.

A Glasgow woman was injured in a separate accident earlier the same morning when her accelerator stuck, causing her 2007 Toyota Camry to strike her garage door and then the interior wall of her home, Glasgow Police said.

Deana L. McKinney, 39, of 217 Simmental Lane, Glas-gow, was transported to T.J. Samson by private means for treatment.
