Emergency responders were sent to an accident in Mount Olivet, but were initially directed to the wrong location. Around 11 p.m., they were told there was an auto accident with entrapment and the Robertson County Volunteer Fire Department was sent to Kentucky 165 at Kentucky 1476/Thomas Pike. The volunteers were told that there was a Ford Ranger over the embankment and it was not visible to the road; there were two people trapped in the car and the female passenger did not appear to have a pulse.
They looked for the accident for a few minutes when they were notified that it was actually at the opposite end of Thomas Pike at the intersection of Piqua-Kentontown Road/Kentucky 617. The initial evaluation of the accident scene was, however, correct. Some people thought the crash may have happened an hour before it was even called in to 9-1-1.
In the car were Mary Judith Gibson, 52, and Clyde "Shorty" Gibson. Mary was pronounced dead at the scene by the Robertson County Coroner Rusty Thompson. Clyde was treated at the scene and then taken by air ambulance to University of Kentucky Hospital.
Authorities are not positive what caused the crash, but Robertson County Sheriff Randy Insko and Kentucky State Police Troopers Jason Ritter and Ryan Roessler have begun an investigation. They do suspect that alcohol may have been a factor and tests are currently pending.
We offer our most sincere condolences to the family of Mary Judith Gibson.
