A three-car accident at the intersection of KY 55 and Booker Road in Springfield Friday morning left two people injured. According to a report by Washington County Deputy Sheriff Jackie Robinson, the accident occurred when Lauren Smith, 51, of Booker Road in Springfield, was driving a 2001 Pontiac Montana van. The report said Smith pulled onto the southbound lane of KY 55 from Booker Road and struck a 1999 Lincoln driven by Edward B. Cecil, 70, of Louisville. The impact of the collision knocked Cecil’s vehicle across the center line and into the northbound lane of KY 55, and into the path of a 2002 Chevrolet Caprice driven by Derrick English, 35, of Lebanon.  A passenger in each of the Cecil and English vehicles was treated for minor injuries.
