Pickup Truck Rolls Over in Kentucky

Posted on Aug 11, 2009

A rollover accident occurred in Kentucky after a woman driving a pickup truck attempted to make a fast turn onto the street.  Her vehicle rolled onto its top and hit a light pole.

According to Kentucky State Police, Debra Pennington, the driver of the Ford F-150 XLT, was trying to pull onto the street when it appears as though she overcorrected and lost control of the pickup.  As a result, the truck flipped, hit a light pole and consequently knocked out power in the local area, said Kentucky State Police Trooper Scott Caudill.

One of the local residents in the area told police at the accident scene that the breaker box was pulled from the side of her house, which caused the electricity to shut off.  However, Kentucky Utilities was able to fix the problem.

There were two young people riding with Pennington at the time of the rollover crash.  They were taken by Morehead-Rowan County EMS to St. Claire Regional for treatment for their injuries.  Pennington was not injured in the car accident, according to Caudill.  The state trooper went on to say that all of the occupants in the pickup were wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash and that alcohol was not believed to be a factor.

Caudill is still investigating the Kentucky car accident.
