Wrecks claim one life; critically injures another
In Feb. 10 Issue

A Russell Springs man was killed Thursday in the Webbs Crossroads community when his vehicle left the roadway and overturned, ejecting him from the vehicle.

The fatal wreck occurred around 5:30 p.m. on Hwy 76 two miles west of Webbs Crossroads when 42-year-old Rodney Irvin's 1996 Chevrolet, which was westbound, left the roadway and threw him from the vehicle, pinning him underneath.

Irvin was pronounced dead at the scene by Russell County Coroner Larry Skaggs. Trooper Bryan Shepard investigated the wreck.

In other wrecks this past week:

Joseph "Luke" Smith, a 22-year-old Russell Springs man, was critically injured Saturday afternoon when his vehicle struck a tree near Salem Elementary School, according to the Russell County Sheriff's Office.  

The wreck happened just before 4 p.m. when Smith lost control of a 1996 Ford Taurus on Ky. 910, leaving the roadway and striking a tree.

Smith was ejected from the vehicle and thrown approximately 20 feet, according to police reports.

Smith was taken from the scene by the Russell County EMS to the Russell County Hospital and then flown by helicopter to the U.K. Chandler Medical Center for treatment of his injuries.  

Deputy Sheriff Nick Bertram worked the scene while the Eli Volunteer Fire Department also responded.

The Jamestown Police Department investigated a rear-end collision Friday afternoon that slightly injured two adults and two children.  

Lt. Tracy Irvin worked the wreck which happened around 2:20 p.m. at the intersection of U.S. 127 and the Jamestown By-Pass.  

A 1995 Nissan Altima driven by Johnny Crew, 48, of Jamestown was hit from behind by a 1999 Ford Ranger driven by 67-year-old Winston Burton of Russell Springs.  

Crew, and his wife, Teresa, and two child passengers, Richard King, 9, and Heather King, 7, were taken by private vehicle to the Russell County Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.  

Lt. Tony King assisted Irvin in the investigation Friday.
