accident glass 300DAVIESS COUNTY, Ky. (12/15/19) — A 13-vehicle crash along the 1700 block of Wendell Ford Expressway in Daviess County resulted in one injured this evening.

Daviess County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded and called EMS to check on a pregnant woman who was struck in the stomach by the vehicle’s airbag. She was taken to the emergency room.

After investigating, DCSO said the lead driver involved in the incident told deputies he was headed east on the bypass, when it appeared traffic in front of him was slowing or stopped. He applied brakes, began to slide and struck a guardrail on the right side of the road.

“This started a chain reaction, which caused 12 other vehicles to wreck,” DCSO wrote.

Traffic was reduced to one lane as first responders and tow truck crews worked to remove five disabled vehicles.
