Rash of wrecks keep emergency personnel busy

Somerset —  

Emergency responders were kept busy this week with a rash of car accidents that sent several people to the hospital.
A report of a one-vehicle accident on Ky. 70, located about 12 miles north of Somerset, came in at around 5:30 p.m. Monday, according to Sgt. Troy McLin, with the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department, which responded to the scene.
Once there, emergency personnel discovered that Angela A. Ryan, 36, of N. Ky. 1247, Science Hill, was traveling eastbound on Ky. 70 in a 2005 Toyota Camry when the vehicle left the roadway.
McLin said Ryan reported that a “deer crossed into the path of her car, and she swerved to miss it.”
Ryan’s vehicle left Ky. 70 and flipped over an embankment several times before coming to rest in a field near the Buck Creek Bridge.
Ryan was extricated from her vehicle, which landed on its roof, by the Pulaski County Rescue Squad. 
The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department was also assisted on the scene by Somerset-Pulaski County EMS and the Eubank Volunteer Fire Department. 
Two accidents occurred on Tuesday, one of which may have been caused by the area’s wet roadways — a result of the rain brought about by Hurricane Sandy’s march inland. 
McLin said he responded to a one-vehicle accident on Jacksboro Road, located off Ky. 90 in Bronston, at around 2:30 Tuesday. 
Mary A. Britt, 34, of Jacksboro Road, Bronston, was traveling eastbound on Jacksboro Road when she apparently lost control of the 2000 Chevrolet impala she was operating, according to McLin. 
Britt was extricated from her vehicle by the Pulaski County Rescue Squad before she was transported by Somerset-Pulaski County EMS to lake Cumberland Regional Hospital. 
McLin said a juvenile in Britt’s vehicle, Joseph Britt, 3, was transported as well to be checked out. 
McLin said the scene was cleared at around 3:40 p.m. Tuesday.
