KSP: Injury collision closes parkway - investigation report

By Sergeant Jason Morris

The Kentucky State Police investigated a two-vehicle injury collision on the Louie B. Nunn Parkway near Columbia on Tuesday around 2:44pmCT.

Preliminary investigation indicates a 2011 GMC being operated by 41-year-old Daniel Lloyd of Glasgow, was stopped on the right emergency lane traveling East on the Louie B. Nunn Parkway. Lloyd was attempting to turn from the emergency lane into the U-turn when he pulled into the path of a 2005 Freightliner being operated by 36-year-old Bengie Fletcher of Edmonton, causing the GMC to overturn and ejecting two of the occupants. Fletcher's vehicle continued off the roadway over an embankment coming to rest in a creek.

Officer Casey Tooley investigated the collision, and was assisted by the members of Kentucky State Police, Adair County Sheriff's Office, Columbia Police Department, Adair County EMS, Breeding Fire Department, Kentucky Department of Transportation, and the Kentucky Division of Environmental Protection.

Daniel Lloyd, 33-year-old Kasey Cook of Glasgow, 29-year-old Anthony Garcia of Smith Grove and 26-year-old Lucas Wilson of Edmonton were all transported to T.J. Health Columbia with serious injuries. Bengie Fletcher was transported to T.J. Samson Hospital in Glasgow with serious injuries
