Franklin County Sheriff's Office News

Sheriff Pat Melton Released today that this morning Deputies responded to an injury collision involving a single vehicle on 460 this morning around 9:30AM. A single occupant of the vehicle was transported to FRMC with significant injuries. Weather conditions and speed are suspected to be factors in the causation of the collision. The vehicle was observed by a witness losing control around the right-hand curve and overcorrecting. This caused the vehicle to cross over the centerline and exit the roadway. Upon exiting the roadway the vehicle tripped while striking the ditch line and a wooden plank horse fence. The vehicle incurred one overturn event after tripping before coming to rest on its wheels. A second vehicle was struck by debris from the fence but was never contacted by the vehicle which had lost control.

At about 10:30 this morning Deputies responded to the scene of a suspected minor-injury collision at the 54mm EB on I 64 involving one white 2000 Dodge Ram truck. Operator stated he lost control of his vehicle due to the wet conditions and left the roadway. Rear of vehicle apparently collided with a rock wall. One lane of the Interstate was shut down for approximately 30 minutes to clear the disabled vehicle.
