No injuries in two wrecks on Wednesday
MAGOFFIN COUNTY – As the much-needed rain finally set in, rescue crews were kept busy Wednesday with two non-injury wrecks, occurring within a 10-minute span.
At approximately 11 a.m. on November 30 the Magoffin County Rescue Squad, Trans-Star and Magoffin County Sheriff Department were dispatched to a one-vehicle accident on the Mountain Parkway, roughly 300 feet from the Morgan County line.
The driver was not injured and the vehicle had stopped out of the roadway.
Magoffin County Rescue Squad Captain Carter Conley cautioned motorists to slow down in the curve near the county line (where the bridge is) and avoid using cruise control when the roads are wet.
While crews were responding to the wreck on the Mountain Parkway, the rescue squad, Trans-Star and sheriff department were also dispatched to another wreck on West U.S. 460.
The driver had called dispatch, but was unsure where exactly on U.S. 460 she had wrecked. With her vehicle over the hill and on its top, crews had a hard time locating the wreck, but found it in the Ben Patrick curve.
The driver was out of the vehicle and was checked out and released by paramedics, however, she did require assistance climbing up the hill.
Conley said he estimated her vehicle had flipped 2 ½ times, but, thankfully, she was wearing her seatbelt.
Salyersville Fire and Rescue also responded as mutual aid for the wreck on U.S. 460.
