Thursday, July 20, 2017 — The driver of a passenger car avoided serious injury Thursday morning when her car veered into the adjacent lane and struck a semi tractor-trailer while both were traveling eastbound on the Bluegrass Parkway.

Just after 8 a.m., the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office, Nelson County EMS and Nelson County Fire and Rescue were dispatched to the area of the parkway’s eastbound lanes at the 16 mile marker for a possible injury accident involving a semi and a passenger car.

According to a press release from the sheriff’s office, Tessa Hines, 42, of Elizabethtown, was driving east in the right lane when her Toyota Corolla veered into the left lane, striking a 2015 Freightliner driven by David Sewell, 49, of Lancaster. Hines’ car went into a skid and struck a guard rail. Hines refused treatment or transport by EMS. The driver of the semi was uninjured.

Lt. Kaelen Matthews of the Nelson County Sheriff’s Office investigated the accident.
