Somerset Police investigated a two-vehicle collision Wednesday morning involving a van Pulaski County uses to transport inmates to court.

The accident occurred at approximately 8:23 a.m. at the intersection of US 27 and Ky. 80 when, according to preliminary investigation by Officer Andrew Wilson, a northbound 2013 Honda Civic driven by Courtney Miller, 23, of Russell Springs failed to stop for the red light. At the same time a 2008 Ford Econoline was traveling east on Ky. 80.

As the van -- which is used by the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office to transport inmates to court -- entered the intersection, it struck the Civic in the left side. The van was driven by Pulaski County Deputy Jeff Stringer, who serves as a court bailiff, and carried another deputy as well as one inmate.

No injuries were reported at the scene.
