Two Russell County men were injured, and one was flown to the University of Louisville Hospital, last Friday morning when their pickup trucks collided at the newly reconstructed intersection of Blair's School Road and Hales Highway.
The wreck happened just before 9 a.m. when a 1996 Chevrolet being driven by 38-year-old Bentley O'Dell, who works at Westlake Primary Care, was going east on Blair's School Road and, according to reports, failed to stop at the intersection with Hales Highway, according to Deputy Sheriff Clete McAninch.
The move resulted in the O'Dell pickup entering the path of a Dodge truck being driven by Roger D. Blair, 62, which was traveling north on Hales Hwy.
O'Dell was ejected through the passenger side window of his truck and out onto the roadway.
Both O'Dell and Blair were both taken be Russell County EMS to the Russell County Hospital.
O'Dell was later flown to the University of Louisville Hospital for further treatment to what was called "serious" injuries. Blair was treated and released from the hospital. O’Dell remains in critical condition at presstime.
