Three people were injured in a rollover accident on County Road 550 North from U.S. Highway 421 in Pulaski County on Saturday.
An officer from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department found that Glenn Sewell, of Medaryville, was on 550 North when he left the roadway, overturned and came to rest on the passenger side. Sewell was trapped inside the vehicle and was extricated by the fire department. Two children in the vehicle and Sewell were injured and were taken to Pulaski Memorial Hospital.
Sewell told police that a truck was coming toward him and he drove off the road so the truck could get around him. He stated that when he returned to the road, he pushed the accelerator and started sliding on ice on the road. It was then that he left the roadway and rolled his pick-up truck.
Police believe that alcohol could have been a factor in the accident, as well as unsafe speed. Sewell did consent to a blood draw at the hospital so officials could check his blood alcohol content.
