The sheriff’s office handled five automobile accidents last week, two of which involved a deer colliding with a vehicle.
Springfield City Police officer Charles Osbourn was en route to the Marion County jail with a prisoner on Dec. 14, traveling south on Hwy. 55 just past the Lebanon-Springfield Airport, when a deer struck the vehicle in the front right fender and down the right side, according to a police report from the Washington County Sheriff’s office.
The unit didn’t suffer any noticeable damage and continued on to the Marion County jail. The prisoner, James Baldwin, was treated at Spring View Hospital after complaining of pain. Baldwin was released and taken to the Marion County jail.
According to a sheriff’s office police report, Washington County E.M.S., fire and rescue were called to the scene of an accident at 3:06 p.m. on Dec. 10 at the intersection of Lincoln Park Road and the US 150 bypass.
Helena A. Gootee of Springfield was driving south in a 2011 Chevrolet Cruze on Lincoln Park Road and didn’t stop at the stop sign at the intersection of US 150.
Matthew D. Tuggle of Lancaster was driving a 2001 east on the US 150 bypass and saw that Gootee was going to miss the stop sign. Tuggle tried to veer and avoid a collision, but made contact with Gootee’s vehicle, struck a guard rail and then stopped on the shoulder.
The impact spun Gootee’s vehicle 180 degrees before coming to rest in the northbound lane of Lincoln Park Road.
On Dec. 13 at 6:36 a.m., a 1998 Chevrolet food vendor truck drove onto the median of the roundabout in front of the St. Catharine property.
According to the police report, Robert J. Farmer of Lebanon, driving a Lebanon Food Factory truck, was traveling west on Bardstown Road and ran up on the roundabout. The collision caused damage to the grassy area and the road sign.
Farmer told officers that he had been through the roundabout before, but forgot about it on that particular morning.
On Friday at 11:24 a.m., the sheriff’s office responded to an accident four miles east of the city on KY 152. Jordan A. Smith of Bardstown was traveling west on KY 152 and went off the right side of the roadway, through a woven wire fence before striking a utility pole.
Smith was not injured in the accident.
At 4:50 p.m. on Dec. 13, Springfield City Police responded to the Fivestar Food Mart building after a driver tried to park, jumped the sidewalk and struck the building.
James S. Hamilton of Bardstown told police that his brakes failed when he tried to park, thus sending his 2000 Chevrolet S10 into the building, causing damage to the gutter downspout and the brickwork behind the gutter.
Hamilton was not injured in the accident.
Springfield City Police also responded to a minor collision at the Tobacco Barn in the Save-a-Lot parking lot at 6:23 p.m. on Dec. 14.
