Muhlenberg Co. woman hurt in wreck | News
A Powderly woman was hurt Sunday afternoon when the pickup truck she was riding in went off the road in Beechmont.
Kentucky State Police say it happened on US 431 about 1:10 p.m.
Troopers say their preliminary investigation revealed that Steven Cottrell, 47, was heading northbound when he swerved to avoid a vehicle in front of him that was turning into a driveway. Cottrell lost control of the truck and it went off the right shoulder of the roadway, striking a mailbox and a tree before coming to rest in a ditch.
Cottrell was not injured but his wife Debbie Cottrell, 44, was transported via ambulance to the Muhlenberg Community Hospital for treatment. Both were wearing seatbelts.
