Vanceburg Accident Leaves Two Injured
According to a police report, a 1985 Chevrolet Blazer driven by Eric W. Brown, 23, of Garrison, was traveling west on Kentucky 8, approximately 5 miles outside of Vanceburg, when the accident occurred. The police report indicates that Brown lost control and veered off to the right shoulder after rounding a curve.
Brown then overcorrected the vehicle, crossed over both lanes, and ended up approximately 90 feet off the left shoulder and in a field. A passenger in the Chevrolet, Daniel E. Stone Jr., 26, of Garrison, was ejected from the vehicle after the Blazer flipped over. When rescue crews found Stone, he was approximately 30 feet from the vehicle.
Brown and Stone were both transported to Southern Ohio Medical Center and treated for injuries sustained in the accident. Their conditions were not made available.
The Vanceburg accident is still under investigation by the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office. According to reports, it was snowing when the accident occurred; however, it is believed that the roads were dry. Police are trying to determine if alcohol played a role in the wreck.
