Injury Commercial Vehicle Collision on the Cumberland Parkway

Date of News Release: 07/25/2013

Louisville, KY. (July 25, 2013) KY State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement is investigating an injury accident in Barren County along the Cumberland Parkway. According to CVE Officers Roy Murley and Brandon Ford from Post 3 Bowling Green, the accident occurred at 0615 hrs this morning. A loaded tractor and trailer was traveling westbound on the parkway near the 8 mile marker when the combination vehicle left the roadway and struck a tree. Officers on scene determined "fatigue" to be a contributing factor in the accident, as the operator of the vehicle told officers he "fell asleep" prior to leaving the roadway. The operator of the vehicle sustained severe injuries and was air lifted to Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville TN. 1 lane of the Cumberland parkway was closed for several hours as investigating units secured the scene. The driver's name has not been released as the investigation is still on going. KY State Police were assisted by the Barren County Sheriff's Office.
